(Reuters)

The ministry emphasised the UAE's solidarity with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

The UAE has strongly condemned the heinous stabbing crime that targeted unarmed civilians in Jerash city, northwest Jordan, leading to the injury of a number of people and tourists.

In a statement, the ministry emphasised the UAE's solidarity with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan against all manifestations of violence, terrorism, and extremism, all of which contravene human values and principles. The statement also wished a speedy recovery to the injured.

On Wednesday, three Mexican tourists and one Swiss were wounded along with four locals in Jordan when a man went on a stabbing rampage in Jerash.

Police identified the suspect as 22-year old Mohammad Abu Touaima and said he lived in a makeshift home on the edge of the city near a poor refugee camp where unemployment was rife among many of the youth in the area.
