The Jerusalem Post: Netanyahu plans annexing the West Bank

Tel Aviv, Dec 22 (Prensa Latina) The decision of the next Israeli government, headed by Benjamin Netanyahu, to legalize numerous Jewish outposts in the West Bank is in fact an annexation, The Jerusalem Post stressed.

According to the newspaper, Netanyahu agreed with his far-right partners to authorize nearly 70 of such sites in the first 60 days in power.

He also approved a plan to give over to Israeli civil authorities the Area C in the West Bank, now under full control of Tel Aviv´s Army.

Area C comprises 60 percent of the West Bank which includes most of the Jewish settlements.

“The measure is considered a form of “de facto annexation” because it gives the government direct supervision over territories beyond the country’s sovereign borders,” the newspaper explained.

This puts Netanyahu’s government on an immediate collision course with the United States and the European Union, who demanded from the next prime minister not to apply the bill, The Jerusalem Post added.

Netanyahu, who ruled the country for 15 years, returned to power after winning last month’s elections at the head of the most right-wing coalition ever, in Israel’s history.
