Israeli government plans to intensify annexation of West Bank

Israeli government plans to intensify annexation of West Bank

Tel Aviv, Jan 25 (Prensa Latina) Benjamin Netanyahu’s far-right government is studying several unprecedented measures to advance in the annexation of the West Bank, where over three million Palestinians live, the Israel Hayom newspaper revealed.

The authorities are planning a revolution in Judea and Samaria, the newspaper noted using the Israeli name for the West Bank, territory that the international community considers part of the future Palestinian state.

Among the proposals is the approval to build some 18,000 homes for Jewish settlers and other infrastructure works currently paralyzed, as well as the elimination or reduction of the role of the Civil Administration.

The Administration, run by the Israeli Ministry of Defense, is in charge of bureaucratic functions in the West Bank and therefore governs the lives of Palestinians there.

Under the new plan, many of those functions would be taken over by the various Israeli ministries, which is a definitive annexation of the territory.

According to various sources, some 490,000 settlers live throughout the West Bank and another 200,000 in East Jerusalem, despite numerous resolutions against the said policy approved by the UN Security Council.
