A day before the parliamentary election in Israel the right-wing conservative head of government Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed the plans for the annexation of Israeli settlements in the West Bank.
Netanyahu said to the Israeli television on Monday that “the whole settlement enterprise, all of the settlement points” to the Israeli state’s territory to strike.
The Comments come ahead of the General election on Tuesday. Netanyahu hopes to overtake in the polls, the leading opposition Alliance, the center of Ex-military chief Benny Ganz.
Israel had conquered in 1967 in the six day war, including the West Bank and East Jerusalem. There are more than 600,000 Israeli settlers now live in more than 200 settlements. Especially the arch-conservative education Minister Naftali Bennett penetrates for some time, to Annex large parts of the West Bank. The Palestinians claim the areas, however, for a state of Palestine with East Jerusalem as its capital.
Netanyahu said the annexation plans: “I prefer to do this in the agreement.” He had already discussed the issue with representatives of the US President Donald Trump. “I told you, that it is necessary in my view. But that’s going to happen, it is nothing I have to cook for the choice of “up”.” You want to extend Israeli law to the settlements, Netanyahu said. “I prefer this, and do with US consent.”
Trump wants to publish after the Israeli elections, his long-announced peace plan for Israel and the Palestinians. Netanyahu said he is seeking a “real and responsible peace” with the Palestinians.
Netanyahu had voted in 2009 for the establishment of a demilitarized Palestinian state, and the page should exist-by-side in peace with Israel. In February, he warned that a Palestinian state endangers Israel’s security.
