This study seeks to determine how the Jordanian online newspapers covered the Palestinian-Israeli conflict in 2021. It also aims to identify the topics and frames used in this coverage by using the content analysis method for all media materials published in the online versions of the three major Jordanian daily newspapers (Alrai, Addustour, and Alghad). The number of articles analyzed was (1234) during the conflict period. This study identified the different frames used in the three selected newspapers. The two frameworks of solidarity and military confrontations came at the forefront of the most used frames in the three newspapers, with a percentage of 56%. The findings reveal that the three newspapers mainly relied on information collected by field correspondents as their primary sources. This study also finds that there were four topics that the three newspapers focused on significantly, amounting to more than (50%) of the topics identified by the researchers. These topics revolved around urging support for Gaza, the practices and violations committed by Israel, the escalation of the conflict, and the position of the Arab countries on the conflict.
