Jordanian-Israeli tensions continue to rise

Tensions are growing between Israel and Jordan just days after the 25th anniversary of the Wadi Araba peace agreement between the two countries.

On Tuesday, Jordan recalled its ambassador from Tel Aviv “for consultation” in protest at Israel’s months-long detention of two Jordanians without charge or trial.

“We hold [the] Israeli government responsible for the lives of our citizens whose health conditions have severely deteriorated in illegal arbitrary detention,” Jordanian foreign minister Ayman Safadi said, calling it a “first step.”
