Abu Ghosh intends to rename its main street after the late King Hussein of Jordan, Channel 13 reported on Thursday.

The Arab-Israeli town, located 10 kilometers west of Jerusalem on the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway, will honor the late monarch who signed the 1994 Jordanian-Israeli peace treaty.

Once the change is made, the town will be the first in Israel to honor a recent Arab leader.
