Settlers calls for Israeli sovereignty in West Bank

May 2, 2011 23:55

Settlers on Monday night called for Israeli sovereignty in all of the West Bank in light of last week announcement by Fatah and Hamas that the two factions would unite to form a new Palestinian government.

This announcement absolves Israel of any obligation it had to allow for the creation of a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria, said the Council of Jewish Communities of Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip. It issued the statement after holding a late night emergency meeting in response to recent development.
