In a move clearly aimed at stepping up political pressure against Israel, Jordanian officials have announced Amman may recall its ambassador to Israel, blaming Israeli attacks against al-Aqsa.
Jordan’s King Abdullah II recently warned Israel of a fracture in diplomatic relations between the countries despite assurances from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who pointed out Israel is protecting the status quo on Har Habayis while Arabs are launching unprovoked attacks.
Abdullah apparently prefers to ignore the prime minister’s remarks, opting to release statements based on PA (Palestinian Authority) rhetoric and propaganda.
Jordanian officials explain they continue to monitor the situation and Amman’s actions will be based on “developments on the ground” in Israel.
