ISRAELI Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held his final pre-election Cabinet meeting in the heart of Palestine’s Jordan valley today to underscore his plan to illegally annex the territory.
The meeting agreed to retrospectively recognise the illegal settlement at Mevo’ot Yeriho, an enclave of Israeli colonists on the outskirts of the Palestinian city of Jericho.
At the meeting — held in a tent draped in Israeli flags — Mr Netanyahu said he was establishing the future eastern border of Israel.
“The Jordan valley, together with the territories that will be part of Israel, guarantees that the military will be here forever,” he declared.
The valley has been illegally occupied by Israel since 1967 but until now Tel Aviv has stopped short of trying to formally absorb it.
This latest move has prompted international outrage as it would form the heart of any future Palestinian state.
Mr Netanyahu faces retired general Benny Gantz of the Blue and White Party as his main rival in elections tomorrow.
