El Sisi joins Jordanian, Palestinian leaders to condemn “unilateral Israeli measures”

Egyptian-Jordanian-Palestinian summit addresses heightened tensions in Israel-Palestine conflict: Palestinian affairs took center stage at a meeting yesterday in Cairo between President Abdel Fattah El Sisi, Jordanian King Abdullah II, and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, according to a joint statement. The statement reiterated the three leaders’ support for a two-state solution to the conflict, as well as Jordanian and Egyptian support for Abbas.

A message to the new Israeli gov’t: The three leaders “confirmed the need to halt illegal unilateral Israeli measures that undermine the two-state solution and [chances] of achieving just and comprehensive peace,” including “settlements, confiscation of Palestinian lands, demolitions of homes, the displacement of Palestinians from their homes, the continuous Israeli raids into Palestinian cities, and the violation of the historical and legal status in Jerusalem and its sanctities.”

ICYMI- The meeting comes following a series of provocative moves by Israel’s new far-right government, which includes ministers that have advocated deporting Arabs and annexing the country’s illegal settlements in the West Bank.

The summit got coverage in Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime: 2:13), and Ala Mas’ouleety (watch, runtime: 10:47.)
