Israel releases Jordanian MP Imad Al-Adwan

After Israel arrested Imad al-Adwan, a member of Jordan’s parliament, on suspicion of smuggling weapons and 100kg of gold into the occupied West Bank in April. Al-Adwan was apprehended at the King Hussein Bridge (Allenby) border crossing in the occupied West Bank, where Israeli security reportedly discovered the contraband in his car.

Israel has now reached an understanding with Jordan and Imad al-Adwan has now been released to Amman’s custody on condition that he is prosecuted and treated “harshly”.
