Great loss to KAS Jordan and Gulf office
We are deeply saddened by the passing away of our dear colleague, Ghassan Mashkhaj (Abu Ahmad), who was a longstanding member of the KAS staff. His cheerful, warm-hearted character and dependability made him an essential part of our daily lives at the office. He will be truly missed by all. We offer our deepest sympathy to his wife, four children and his family and friends.
