Israel Annexation Plan: Former world leaders warn against Israel's occupation policy

United Nations, Ep. A group of former world leaders on Friday appealed to European leaders to pressurize Israel against plans to occupy parts of the West Bank. On July 1, leaders took action against Israel for not taking any steps to assert authority over the area. Alders, founded in 2007 by Nelson Mandela, has stated in letters to leaders in France, Germany, Britain and the European Union that they should urge Israel that the adjustment would have negative political and economic consequences for bilateral and regional relations.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that he would like to start adjusting the West Bank region according to US President Donald Trump's Middle-East plan, with the goal of starting the process by Wednesday, but Israeli cabinet minister Tiran Akunis  Said that the process of adjustment has been delayed. Giving information about this to the Israeli Army radio station, he said that officials are still working on the final details with their American counterparts. He said he expected the process of adjustment to begin by the end of July.

Most international communities support two-state solutions

The UN Security Council and most international communities support the two-state solution. Accordingly, the West Bank envisions an independent Palestinian nation and an independent Gaza with an agreement on land swap. The territory was occupied by Israel in 1967 from Jordan. The Palestinians want East Jerusalem as their state capital.

The Trump administration's peace plan came out in January. Under this, about 30 percent of the West Bank would be permanently under Israeli control and Israel was given the green light to adjust the area. Palestinians have opposed this plan. They have called it in favor of Israel.
