Jordan bans Israelis from entering Al-Baqura area
Under 1994 peace deal with Amman, Jordan Valley's northern village of Al-Baqura was leased to Israel for 25 years
The Jordanian government has informed Israel that it will ban Israelis' entry to Al-Baqura area in the Jordan valley as of next Sunday.
According to Israeli Channel 7, Israeli farmers will be banned from entering the fertile enclave of Al-Baqura, Idan Greenbaum, head of the occupied Jordan Valley council, said Thursday.
Under the 1994 peace agreement with Amman, Jordan Valley's northern villages of Al-Baqura and Al-Ghamar were leased to Israel for 25 years.
In October 2018, Jordan announced that it would terminate the lease agreement and take over the two areas.
