The Israeli plan to annex parts of the West Bank is “illegal”. This was reported by Michelle Bachelet, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
The UN High Commissioner stressed that the “shock waves” of the Israeli annexation plan “will last for decades”.
“The annexation is totally illegal,” Bachelet said in a statement. “Any annexation, whether it’s 30% of the West Bank, or 5%.”
July 1 “is not a sacred date” for the annexation of parts of the West Bank. Defense Minister Benny Gantz said this today to President Trump’s envoy Avi Berkovitz and US ambassador David Friedman. “Before embarking on diplomatic steps – added Gantz, according to sources from his Blu-Banco party – we need to help our citizens get back to work. Their first concern is the coronavirus”, Gantz also expressed full support for the Trump Plan.
