While the tension between Israel and Palestine has risen again in the last few days, it was stated that before the month of Ramadan, officials from Israel and Palestine will meet in Jordan to reduce the tension in the region. It is stated that the one-day meeting to be held in Aqaba, located on the Red Sea coast of Jordan, will be attended by senior security chiefs from Israel and Palestine, representatives of major regional parties, and the US National Security Council Middle East and North Africa Coordinator Brett McGurk.
Speaking to the media on condition of anonymity, officials said the talks are part of Jordan’s growing diplomatic relations with the United States and its regional partner, Egypt, to restore calm with Israel and rebuild trust between the two sides in Gaza and the Palestinian territories in the West Bank.
The Jordanian official, who did not want his name to be disclosed, said, “There hasn’t been such a meeting for years. Bringing them together is a great success.”
In a statement made by the Palestinian government, it was stated that the delegation will call on Israel to end its occupation of the West Bank and bring forward a two-state peace agreement with East Jerusalem as its capital.
“You must announce your withdrawal from attending this dubious meeting and resist the occupation by all means at your disposal,” Basim Naeem, senior Hamas official who controls Gaza, said in a statement.
At least 62 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces this year, the Palestinian Ministry Of Health Said.
