Determined to Preserve Israeli Sovereignty, Caucus Says to Netanyahu Build Beyond the Trump Plan Boundary

The Knesset Land of Israel Caucus pushed back on President Trump’s peace plan this week stating that in lieu of annexation in Judea and Samaria, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu must protect the entirety of the Area C for future Israeli Sovereignty.

The 43-member caucus, which has long campaigned for the application of Israeli Sovereignty over all Area C, spoke out in the aftermath of the suspension of plans to annex 50% of Area C as outlined Trump’s peace plan, in exchange for a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

The caucus called on Netanyahu to strengthen existing Jewish communities slated for annexation and expressed particular concern for the 50% of Area C, which under the Trump plan, is designated for a Palestinian state. The caucus wants that territory to be preserved for Israel.
