Jordan’s King Abdullah threatens to cancel peace treaty if Israel applies sovereignty in Judea-Samaria
BREAKING: Jordan’s King Abdullah II threatened: “if Israel would annex parts of the West Bank it would lead to a massive conflict with Jordan”.
In an interview with Der Spiegel, when asked if Jordan would cancel the peace treaty with Israel the king said: “We are considering all options.”
As part of a coalition agreement, PM Netanyahu and Benny Gantz agreed that the government can begin moving forward with applying Israeli sovereignty to Jewish communities of Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley after July 1, a move expected to enjoy backing from a majority of lawmakers in the Knesset.
According to President Trump’s Mideast peace plan unveiled in January, the US will recognize an Israeli application of sovereignty over parts of the Jordan Valley, Judea and Samaria following the completion of a survey conducted by a joint US-Israel mapping committee, and if Israel agrees to negotiate under the framework of the proposal.
