CAIRO, Egypt (AP) -- The leaders of the only two Arab countries to have peace treaties with Israel are condemning Israel's ground offensive in the Gaza Strip.
The office of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak warned Israel of the consequences of the invasion and says 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 says the king told Middle East peace envoy Tony Blair in a telephone conversation that Israel won't achieve security through its "aggression."
Israeli soldiers pushed into Gaza late Saturday, beginning a ground offensive after a week of aerial bombardment.
