Netanyahu: not a meter to be handed over to PA

PNN/Jerusalem

Israeli Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that no plans to deliver land from Area C in the occupied West Bank to Palestinians, claiming the outraged Israeli ministers.

According to Al Ray, in a meeting for Likud ministers on Sunday, Netanyahu stressed that there will be no transfer of land to the Palestinian Authority, “not 40 thousand dunams, not 10 thousand, not one meter,” he said.

On Sunday, the Israeli Cabinet demanded answers after reports surfaced that the Israeli Civil Administration, under orders from Netanyahu, was preparing to deliver 10,000 dunams (2,471 acres) of land from Area C in occupied West Bank to the PA as a confidence-building measure, as reported by Al Ray.

The Yesha Council also strongly denounced the plan, accusing Netanyahu of giving “concessions” instead of attacking the PA and its leaders who “encourage terrorism.”
