Realigning borders

Adjusting boundaries
Transferring territory
Following the negotiation of a peace treaty between Jordan and Israel in 1994, several hundreds of hectares of former Israeli territory south of the Red Sea have been handed over to Jordan, mostly desert and unpopulated land. In practical terms, Israeli border guards have pulled back from between a few tens of metres to several kilometres, depending on the location, to correspond with the border realignment.
