Netanyahu Vows to Annex Large Parts of Occupied West Bank

Reuters

Benjamin Netanyahu has announced he will annex large swathes of occupied Palestinian territories if he is re-elected, the Guardian reports.

The Israeli prime minister said on Tuesday that he planned to make the move, which would permanently seize up to one-third of the West Bank, after the election next week and hinted it may have been approved by Washington.

“I am waiting to do this in maximum coordination with [Donald] Trump,” he said in a speech broadcast live on Israeli television.

Netanyahu said the US president was likely to release his long-touted Middle East peace plan soon. US officials have suggested the plan will not include a Palestinian state, something Netanyahu has promised to never let happen.
