Egypt, Jordan, & Palestine Hold Summit on Gaza Today in Jordan

Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, Jordan’s King Abdullah II, and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas hold a summit on Gaza in Jordan’s Aqaba today, January 10th, as announced by the Royal Hashemite Court of Jordan.

The summit’s agenda focuses on the current developments in Gaza and the West Bank. Earlier this week, President El-Sisi and President Abbas met in Cairo, focusing on strategies to halt the ongoing Israeli aggression in Gaza.

The leaders reiterated their unequivocal and absolute rejection of any attempts to sideline the Palestinian issue or forcibly displace the Palestinians.

El-Sisi had previously held discussions on the humanitarian situation in the besieged strip with King Abdullah II in Cairo. This summit coincides with US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken’s Middle East tour, aiming to engage regional leaders in ‘post-war Gaza’ efforts. Blinken is expected to meet officials in Ramallah on Wednesday and conclude his tour in Cairo on Thursday.
