Jordan to U.S.: Security Control in the Jordan Valley Must Remain in Israel’s Hands – Eli Bardenstein and Ariel Kahane
(Daily Alert)

The Jordanians are pressing the U.S. to accept Israel’s position that the presence of the Israel Defense Forces along the Jordan River is essential for the security of the region. A senior Israeli official said: “There is no technical solution that the Americans have proposed that can replace the presence of the IDF on the Jordan.”

    A senior political official said that Netanyahu is planning to speed construction of a security fence along the river and that the Jordanians are pressing Washington to accept Israel’s security requests since they will also defend Jordan. (Maariv-5 Dec 2013)
