Israeli PM says West Bank annexation ‘isn’t off the table’ yet
Jerusalem: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that his plan to annex portions of the Israeli-occupied West Bank “isn’t off the table” yet.
“The issue of West Bank annexation resides with Washington. It is not yet off the table,” he said. Mr Netanyahu set July 1 as the starting date for his controversial plan to annex the Jordan Valley, an area in the occupied West Bank. As the deadline slipped after the White House did not give a green light, Netanyahu said discussions with U.S. teams will continue.
