Israeli occupation prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has announced he will annex large swathes of the occupied Palestine if he is re-elected next week.
Netanyahu said on Tuesday he planned to make the move after next week’s vote and hinted it may have been approved by Washington. “I am waiting to do this in maximum coordination with Trump,” he said.
The announcement follows a pledge the prime minister made in April to annex Israeli settlements but appeared to extend to a much larger part of Palestine that border Jordan.
Hundreds of thousands of settlers live in outposts in the West Bank, which Israel’s military captured in the massacres against Palestinians more than half a century ago and continues to rule, controlling the lives of more than 2.5 million Palestinians.
