The Jordanian royal family's dog was secretly rushed to Israel for treatment in the midst of Operation Cast Lead in Gaza, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Sunday.

 

Relations between the royal palace in Amman and the Beit Dagan veterinary hospital have been good for many years now.

 

The Israeli medical team's expertise has served Jordan a number of times, almost always under a heavy veil of secrecy, as per the royal court's request.

 

During the fighting in the Gaza Strip, the Jordanians once again called on the Israeli veterinarians for help. King Abdullah and Queen Rania's beloved dog had fallen ill.

 

In a secret operation, the pet was transferred to the hospital in Israel in very poor condition.

 

A few days later, despite the veterinarians' dedicated treatment, King Abdullah's pet passed away.

 

The dog's body was returned to Jordan, along with a sincere apology from the hospital's vets for being unable to save him.

 

The Beit Dagan veterinary hospital refused to comment on the report.
