Netanyahu: ‘Israeli right turns against Deal of the Century’

Israeli media reported, Thursday, that the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, is very concerned about what appears to be a move by far-right parties against the so-called ‘Deal of the Century’.

The Yedioth Ahronoth website reported that “Netanyahu’s entourage expressed some concerns in the wake of Kushner’s statements about the annexation, presumably taking place after the Knesset elections on 2 March, which cause severe damage to Netanyahu’s credibility, after he and his advisers pledged that the annexation decision will be discussed in the coming government meeting for ratification, next Sunday.”

The website added that “strongly-worded messages on the topic of annexation from settlement leaders and the centre-right parties arrived at the Prime Minister’s office. During his flight from Washington to Moscow, Netanyahu held ’emergency consultations,’ and he even summoned the Minister of Tourism, Yariv Levin, to return to the plane, ten minutes after he got off.”
