Communications Minister Gilad Erdan called for Israel to annex Area C of the West Bank in response to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's decision to form a unity government with Hamas.
The Likud minister , a member of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's security cabinet , told Army Radio, "I suggest we begin to prepare to annex Area C. Where there is a Jewish population that needs to stay where it is, we can begin preparations to annex it if there is no Palestinian partner and the situation is unlikely to change."
Erdan said that Abbas and the Palestinians "must understand that there is a price to running away from the negotiating table and unifying with a terrorist organization.
