Fayyad: PA Must have Jordan Valley
Just hours after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu declared that Israel must maintain control of the Jordan Valley
for security reasons, Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad demanded that the PA be given control over the region in any future peace agreement.
“The valley is an integral part of the Palestinian lands that were conquered in 1967, just like east Jerusalem,” Fayyad said.
