A Muslim Brotherhood cell based in Jordan is smuggling weapons to Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and raising funds for terror activities, according to Israeli intelligence shared with Amman.

The London-based al-Hayat daily reported that the information passed from Israel to Jordan led to the arrest of 31 people, most of whom were Palestinian students from the West Bank who had moved to Jordan for their studies.

The revelation comes after Israeli authorities arrested members of an alleged Hamas cell who were suspected of plotting an assassination attempt on Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman last month.

They planned to attack the minister's car with an anti-tank missile as he drove to his Jewish settlement in the occupied West Bank.

In an interview with US channel PBS, Jordan's King Abdullah warned that violence will continue between Israelis and Palestinians if a resolution is not found soon.

If the conflict is not resolved "there'll be a [fourth] fifth, sixth and seventh, and there'll be another war in Lebanon," he said.

"If we don't solve the problem, it's only a matter of time until there's another one," he added. "If we don't unravel and solve this problem between Israelis and Palestinians, we're really going to be fighting the problem with one arm tied behind our back."

Abdullah said that the conflict must be settled in order to solve the "much bigger problem" of the rise of violent radical Islamic extremist groups in the Middle East such as the Islamic State [IS], who have gained large swathes of territory in Syria and Iraq.

"We [in the Muslim world] are moving on to something much bigger, this global fight, this generational fight [against IS] if this thing is still cooking and not resolved, how are we ever going to succeed on this larger problem?"

He added that European countries, such as Belgium and Sweden, are beginning to recognise the State of Palestine unilaterally because of the recruitment of foreign fighters to these terror groups.

"All roads do lead to Jerusalem," he said. "At the end of the day, the core issue is still the Israeli-Palestinian conflict," he said.
