The meeting yesterday between President Mahmoud Abbas and Jordan’s King Abdullah II was highlighted on the front page of the three Palestinian Arabic dailies published today.

Al-Quds daily headlined: “Important meeting between Abbas and the King.”

The third daily, al-Hayat al-Jadida, quoted President Abbas saying in its main story headline on this topic: “Wherever is Jordan, the Palestinian cause is always present.”

It also quoted King Abdallah saying, “There is nothing more important for Jordan than the Palestinian cause.”

The daily also reported on the visit of Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh to Masafer Yatta communities in the South Hebron Hills, threatened with extinction by the Israeli occupation authorities, and his pledge to start projects there that would enhance the resilience of the Palestinian citizens. The other two dailies also reported on this topic.

Al-Ayyam said in another story that a Palestinian resident of East Jerusalem was forced to demolish his home under the pretext of building without permit, and that injuries were confirmed during an Israeli army raid of Nur Shams refugee camp in the northern West Bank city of Tulkarm.

It quoted an American newspaper saying that a meeting between Arab and Israeli security officials was held in Sharm al-Sheikh under US auspices.

Al-Quds quoted Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh saying from Lebanon that Gaza is preparing for a strategic battle with the Israeli occupiers.

It also talked in a report about extensive Israeli excavations and digs under the Marawani mosque and the Islamic museum within the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

It reported on the places within Al-Aqsa compound targeted by Israeli fanatic groups for takeover.

Al-Hayat al-Jadida quoted the Arab League saying that targeting the Palestinian curriculum aims at keeping the Palestinian people uneducated, burying their identity, and distorting facts.

Al-Ayyam said a Palestinian expatriate from Gaza became the first woman mayor of a Swedish town.

It said Israel is warning of a new wave of Covid cases as Palestine recorded 1350 new cases in one week.
