Jordan reclaims borderlands as Israel ties under strain
Amid mounting domestic public pressure last year, Jordan's king said he would not renew land deal with Israel.

Jordan on Sunday received two stretches of land it had allowed Israel to use for decades, amid tense relations between the neighbours 25 years after they signed a landmark peace deal.

Under the terms of two annexes in the 1994 treaty, the enclaves of al-Baqoura and al-Ghumar would remain under Jordanian sovereignty while Israeli farmers maintained access to the land.

But in 2018, amid mounting public pressure not to renew the arrangement relating to the two territories, Jordan's King Abdullah II submitted a one-year notice of termination to Israel.

A good start.
