NABLUS (Ma’an) – The Palestinian Authority has decided to hold its weekly Tuesday meeting in a Palestinian village in the Jordan Valley in response to a Knesset bill approved by a ministerial committee to annex the Jordan Valley.
Secretary-general of the cabinet Fawwaz Aqil told Ma’an Monday that Tuesday’s cabinet meeting would be held in the Jordan Valley village of Ein Al-Beida.
The move, he explained, is a message to the Israelis reminding them that the Jordan Valley is Palestinian land.
“All cabinet ministers will go to the Jordan Valley and study the needs of Palestinian citizens there to support them so they can remain firm on their lands,” he added.
