Israel allowed the transfer of annexation of the West Bank because of COVID-19

The spread of Israeli sovereignty on the part of the land of the West Bank of the Jordan river "will wait", and other issues, not related to the suppression of coronavirus, said the Minister of defence and the replacement of the Prime Minister benny Gantz.

"All that is not to combat the coronavirus, wait," said Gantz at the meeting of the faction "Kajol-Laban".

In addition, on Monday, Gantz met with the special envoy of the White house on international negotiations AVI Berkowitz and U.S. Ambassador to Israel by David Friedman to discuss "peace plan" of President Donald trump.

However, as the official channel of the Israeli Knesset, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday at a meeting of the Likud that "negotiations are underway with the American team, which is in Israel, it is done carefully, the question does not depend on "Kajol-Laban".

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.
