Jordan's king tours enclave along Israel border after end of lease deal

Jordan's King Abdullah paid his first visit on Monday to an enclave fringing the country's northern border with Israel, a day after the expiry of a 25-year special regime that allowed Israeli farmers access to the area, official sources said.


The king had announced on Sunday in parliament that Jordan was "imposing full sovereignty on every inch" of the enclave, to loud applause from lawmakers. Many Jordanians had viewed the arrangement as a humiliating Israeli occupation of their land.
