Jordan’s King Abdullah II calls Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu to congratulate him on his election victory, Netanyahu’s office says.

No details on the conversation are released.

Relations between Israel and Jordan deteriorated markedly during Netanyahu’s last term in office.

Abdullah said in 2019 that ties were “at an all-time low” after a series of incidents that prompted Amman to recall its ambassador to Israel.
