Israel Increases Supply of Water to Jordan, Jordanian Parliament Calls to Expel Israeli Ambassador


jordan-riverThe lower house of the Jordanian parliament unanimously decided on Wednesday to expel Israel’s Ambassador to Jordan, Daniel Nevo, from Amman, and demanded the recall of Jordan’s ambassador to Israel.

At the same time, Former Israeli Ambassador to Jordan Oded Eran told Israel Radio Thursday that Israel had recently increased the transfer of water to Jordan due to the swelling number of Syrian refugees seeking shelter there.

Eran also noted that Israel allows Jordan to use the port of Haifa on the Mediterranean Sea to export its goods to Western countries. Eran said the Israeli and Jordanian governments were on good terms but among the Jordanian population there are feelings of hate toward Israel.
