Two Jordanian military helicopters touched down Sunday at the Muqatta, the Palestinian Authority presidential compound in Ramallah, on the West Bank, and picked up Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for an unplanned meeting with Jordan’s King Abdullah II in the capital Amman. A high-ranking delegation that included PA Foreign Minister Riad Malki; the head of the PA’s General Intelligence Service, Maj. Gen. Majed Faraj; and the head of the General Authority of Civil Affairs, Hussein Al-Sheikh, accompanied Abbas.

The meeting comes days after CIA Director William Burns met with President Abbas, along with Washington’s most trusted Palestinian, the intelligence chief Faraj. That meeting took place after the Jordanian king’s recent visit to the United States, which many observers in the kingdom viewed as “important.” Abdallah had, according to his aides, a constructive meeting with US President Joe Biden as well as members of Congress and other American leaders.
