Is Jordan safe for a year abroad?

Hi, I wanted to ask if whether Amman is safe given what’s happening in Palestine due to Israel’s actions. I have to do a year abroad for Arabic there and I’m not sure if it’ll be safe or not?
Also how is it there in terms of the heat, I know it’s hot but I burn sooo easily so what precautions could I/should I take if I go?

It’s safe and you’re practically not affected at all by the war. It’s hot in the summer 35-40 degrees C during the day. Wear light clothes and spf everyday and you’ll be sorted. The best time to go out is just before sunset- perfect temp, beautiful skies, everything stays open till late and that’s when everything gets busy.
