Netanyahu, Abbas met secretly in Jordan — report

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas met secretly in Amman several days ago, Jordanian newspaper Al Ghad reports.

The unsourced report says the meeting, likely sponsored by Jordan’s king, took place several days before Israel and Hamas agreed on a ceasefire on Tuesday.

It offers no further details.

There is no confirmation of the report from either the Palestinian or Israeli sides.

The two leaders have not met face to face since September 2010.
