Lapid tells Jordan’s king Israel ‘will fight all forms of terror’ against citizens

Lazar Berman is The Times of Israel's diplomatic reporter

Prime Minister Yair Lapid discusses calming tensions in the West Bank with Jordan’s King Abdullah II on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

According to a readout from Lapid’s office, the prime minister stresses that “Israel will not stand by, and will fight all forms of terror directed at Israel, and will not allow harm to the security of its citizens.”

The potential for further escalation is especially high with the Jewish High Holidays beginning next week.

The two leaders are also discussing expanding economic cooperation.

This is the first time the two have met since their sit-down in Amman in July.
