Likud MK's Edelstein, Elkin call for annexing Area C

Israeli annexation of the West Bank’s Area C — where all settlements are located — received public support from two high-ranking Likud politicians on Tuesday evening, Minister Yuli Edelstein and MK Ze’ev Elkin.
“Lack of Israeli sovereignty over Area C, means the continuation of the status quo,” said Edelstein, as he spoke about an area of the country that is now under Israeli military control.
“It strengthens the international community’s demand for a withdrawal of the pre-1967 lines,” he said.
