Amman (QNN)- The king of Jordan warned in an interview published on Friday of a “massive conflict” if the occupation state proceeds with its plans to annex large parts of the West Bank.
In an interview published by the German newspaper Der Spiegel, King Abdullah said plans to annex West Bank territory this summer and an abandonment of the two-state solution for the occupation state and Palestine would hurt the region.
“Leaders who advocate a one-state solution do not understand what that would mean,” said Abdullah, according to the Royal Hashimite Court.
“If Israel really annexed the West Bank in July, it would lead to a massive conflict with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.”
“What would happen if the Palestinian National Authority collapsed? There would be more chaos and extremism in the region. If Israel really annexed the West Bank in July, it would lead to a massive conflict with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan,” he added.
The occupation state has promised to annex illegal settlements and the Jordan Valley, which could put an end to the long-stalled peace process by making it virtually impossible to establish a viable Palestinian state.
Netanyahu has started the annexation procedures by reaching an agreement to form a government after more than a year of political deadlock.
“I don’t want to make threats and create an atmosphere of loggerheads, but we are considering all options. We agree with many countries in Europe and the international community that the law of strength should not apply in the Middle East,” the king said.
In December, Jordan’s military conducted a drill simulating a foreign invasion coming from the western mountains where the kingdom shares a border with Israel.
The West Bank’s Jordan Valley is rich in minerals and agricultural soil and is a highly strategic area that lies on the Jordanian border.
The occupation state of ‘Israel’ captured the West Bank from Jordan during the 1967 war. Most of the international community considers it occupied Palestinian territory.
