Conflicting reports in Jordan about the resignation of Prime Minister Awn Al-Khasawneh continued to circulate on Thursday, with Jordanian newspaper Al-Ghad's website confirming that Khasawneh will quit his post.

"An informed source confirmed to Al-Ghad the receipt of Prime Minister Awn-Khasawneh's resignation, which was tendered Thursday from Turkey where [the prime minister] was on an official visit," Al-Ghad reported.

The Jerusalem Post could not independently verify the report.
