On Tuesday evening Israeli Knesset member Oren Hazan has accepted the challenge issued to him by Jordanian member of parliament Yahia Saaid.
Offended by a tweet written by the Israeli MK, in which Hazan wrote that "our neighbors east to the Jordan" (river) "the same people to whom we provide water and security night and day, need some re-education."
The angry Saaid invited Hazan to meet him in person "ïf he is truly a man."
Hazan accepted the invitation.
According to the Jordanian news portal Amman-News Saaid will wait for Hazan on Wednesday morning on Allenby bridge.
Hazan tweeted he will be there, adding " I have an offer he can't refuse."
