Likud MK Michal Shir thanked President Donald Trump for what she called “the historical justice he is doing for the State of Israel.”
The Trump administration’s “deal of the century” will place West Bank settlements under Israeli rule, Channel 12 said in a report that caused a brief political storm on Sunday night.
The US would not object to a de facto annexation of the settlements, Channel 12 said, suggesting that Israel could apply Israeli civil law to the area in a manner akin to what was done with the Golan Law in 1981. West Bank Palestinian cities would remain under Palestinian control, the report added.
It was the latest in a series of speculative media articles regarding the unpublished deal. Over the last weeks, US special envoys Jason Greenblatt and Jared Kushner have urged the public not to believe any of the media reports and to wait until the plan has been released, possibly as early as June.
Some right-wing politicians attacked the purported US plan for stopping short of full annexation.
