Gaza21Aug8OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-The Israeli government coalition on Sunday intends to explore the possibility of backing new legislation at the Knesset calling for annexing illegal settlements in the West Bank to Israel’s sovereignty.

The legislation, which was drafted by Knesset members Yoav Kisch (Likud) and Bezalel Smotrich (Jewish Home), seeks to impose Israeli sovereignty over Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank, which are currently under military rule.

According to Haaretz newspaper, the draft law has received approval from across the government coalition’s political spectrum and will be discussed during a meeting between heads of the coalition blocs to be held on Sunday

The meeting is intended to explore whether to push forward the settlement annexation bill at the Knesset or shelve it for the time being to avoid angry international reactions, which could not be in Israel’s favor.
