Israeli leaders make secret journey to Jordan

Israeli leaders made a secret journey to neighboring Jordan earlier this week, listening to pleas from King Abdullah II to avert a large-scale military operation in the Gaza Strip, Israeli and Jordan officials confirmed Thursday.

The Israeli officials said the king told Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Defense Minister Ehud Barak that military action would threaten regional stability, the Israeli officials said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because of the secrecy of Tuesday's meeting.
