Israels Westjordanland Annexionsplan

By Jordi Bou

July 1, 2020 - Premierminister Benjamin Netanjahu hat versprochen, bis zu 30% des besetzten Westjordanlandes mit 1. Juli zu annektieren, wie im Friedensplan von Präsident Trump festgelegt.

Israel's incorporation of the settlements was given the green light under U.S. President Donald Trump's Vision for Peace – a plan for ending the decades old Israel-Palestinian conflict unveiled in January.

Annexation would mean applying Israeli civilian law to its settlements in occupied land often deep inside the West Bank, which are home to more than 460,000 Jews. The Israeli government is also exploring annexing the Jordan Valley, home to the ancient city of Jericho and thousands of Palestinians.

The Palestinians and most countries consider that annexation of the West Bank, would be an illegal act, a designation that Israel disputes

Among the main options under U.S. consideration is a gradual, step-by-step process in which Israel would initially declare sovereignty over several settlements close to Jerusalem instead of the 30% of the West Bank envisaged in Netanyahu’s original plan, according to a person close to matter.
