Netanyahu: Danger of Infiltration Through Jordan
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Monday during a meeting of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee: "There is a risk of Iranian infiltration through Jordan into Judea and Samaria and this requires long-term Israeli presence in the Jordan Valley. "
Netanyahu also said at the beginning of the Likud's weekly meeting: "I congratulate the party on its national responsibility which was seen through the vote on the budget. This responsibility gives Israel the power to achieve economic stability."
