Jordan says new ambassador to Israel to arrivenext month

Ghassan Majali, Jordan’s newly appointed ambassador to Israel, will arrive at his post in the coming weeks, according to an official source in the Jordanian capital.

Former Jordanian Ambassador to Israel Walid Obeidat recently left Tel Aviv after serving as Jordan’s envoy for more than five years.

Majali, who previously served as the Jordanian ambassador to Spain, will arrive in Tel Aviv “by the beginning of October,” the source in Amman tells the Times of Israel.

Earlier this week, the Jordanian government officially announced Majali’s appointment as its new top diplomat in Israel.

Asked when Israel expects Majali to arrive in Tel Aviv, Emmanuel Nahshon, a Foreign Ministry spokesman, declined to comment.
