King Abdullah of Jordan to Meet Abbas in Ramallah Today


King Abdullah of Jordan will arrive in the PA city of Ramallah, just north of Jerusalem, on Thursday to meet with Palestinian Authority head, Mahmoud Abbas. He will be the first head of state to visit the PA since its acceptance as a non-member state by the United Nations General Assembly. 

Abbas said on Wednesday that Israeli construction in area E1 connecting Jerusalem and the nearby town of Maaleh Adumim is "crossing a red line" and that he will use all lawful means to stop it.
