Prime Minister Yair Lapid arrives at JFK airport in New York, ahead of the UN General Assembly.

Lapid will meet Jordan’s King Abdullah II later today, his office says shortly after he lands.

Lapid’s office has been seeking the meeting since last week, as the prime minister is eager to discuss escalating tensions in the West Bank.
