Jordan to back Israeli control of Jordan Valley

 

 

(JNS.org) Jordan will back Israeli control of the Jordan Valley in any peace deal with the Palestinians, according to a senior Israel official. “They (Jordan) pressured the Americans to accept Israel’s security demands that they also protect the kingdom of Jordan,” the anonymous Israeli official told Maariv following U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s visit to the region. As part of any peace deal with the Palestinians, Netanyahu has long insisted that Israel retain the Jordan Valley as a security buffer on any attacks from the east, including Iranian missiles. Palestinian negotiators have rejected the plan.
