'Jordan Valley Should be Part of the Election Campaign'


David Elhayani, the head of the Jordan Valley Regional Council, expressed his surprise on Tuesday at the fact that the Jordan Valley is not mentioned in the election campaign of any of the different parties.

"I still hope the prime minister will come to the Jordan Valley and speak about its importance to Israel's security," Elhayani told Arutz Sheva. "Unfortunately, the parties of Yechimovich, Livni and Lapid are opposed to Israeli sovereignty over the Jordan Valley. It is important to emphasize this because it should be part of the election campaign."
