The leaders of the only two Arab countries to have peace treaties with Israel condemned Israel's ground offensive in the Gaza Strip on Sunday. The office of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak warned Israel of the consequences of the invasion and said it places the responsibility on Israel for any civilians that are killed or wounded. Meanwhile, Jordan's King Abdullah II also repeated his call on Sunday for Israel to halt its attacks on Gaza. The official Petra news agency said the king told Middle East peace envoy Tony Blair in a telephone conversation that Israel won't achieve security through its "aggression."
