Netanyahu Seeks White House Approval to Annex Jordan Valley


-

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu wants to annex the Jordan Valley, but he wants White House approval first.

The prime minister wants to announce the annexation before the March 2 elections, in which he finds himself in a tight race with a center-left coalition.

A number of Israeli political players support the move, including Benny Gantz, Naftali Bennett, and Avigdor Lieberman. If it comes to a vote, Netanyahu will likely have the support of 63 MKs.

Still, it's a policy change that will surely bring censure from the international community.
