Jordan Ends Lease Agreement with Israel

Dubai – Masaader News

King of Jordan has announced the end of a lease agreement with Israel, that agreement gave Israelis access to two border enclaves, according to BBC.

Israeli farmers could cultivate land in the Jordanian areas of Naharayim and Tzofar – known as Baqura and Ghamr in Arabic, according to 1994 peace treaty.

King Abdullah announced last year that he planned to end the lease – in what was seen as a sign of worsening ties between Jordan and Israel.

At the time, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had said that he still hoped to negotiate an extension to the arrangement.
