Israel intends to extend the sovereignty on 30% of Judea and Samaria

Israel plans to extend its sovereignty over a third of Judea and Samaria (the occupied West Bank of the Jordan river) within the next month or two, said in an interview with RIA Novosti, the Minister of water resources and of higher education of Israel Zeev Elkin.

"In principle, Yes, we are in the framework of the plan proposed by the us administration, the planned distribution of Israeli sovereignty on 30% of the territory of Judea and Samaria (the West Bank of the Jordan river - ed.) and settlements populated by Israelis," said Israeli Minister of the ruling party "Likud".

Planned within the framework of the implementation of the transaction-century US President Donald trump annexation will reflect the situation already established in the West Bank of the Jordan river where Jewish settlements is home to a significant number of Israelis, the Minister said.

"Today, some 10% of Israelis live beyond the "green line" and therefore, the implementation of the distribution of Israeli sovereignty reflects the real situation today, just as it was in Jerusalem and on the Golan heights. And, in General, I very much hope that this step will be done within the next month or two," said Elkin RIA Novosti.

Trump on 28 January presented a plan of peaceful settlement known as "the deal of the century". The plan of the White house to recognize Jerusalem as the unified and indivisible capital of Israel, makes Israel the opportunity to Annex Palestinian territory in the West Bank of the Jordan river and to extend its sovereignty over the Jordan valley, and also offers the creation of a demilitarized Palestinian state without control over its borders and airspace. As the future capital of Palestine, the plan provides the village of Abu Dis in the Eastern suburbs of Jerusalem.

The Palestinians and some countries, this plan is not adopted, as it, in their view, deprives Palestinians of the right to those areas that are stipulated by the UN resolutions. The head of the Palestinian national authority, Mahmoud Abbas, the new plan is also rejected, saying that the Palestinians insist on recognition of their state in the 1967 borders with its capital in Jerusalem.

May 19, Abbas said that Palestine decided to terminate all agreements with Israel and the United States on the background of the intentions of the Israeli government to join Palestinian land.
