A group of European lawmakers has signed a letter denouncing Israel’s plan to annex parts of the occupied West Bank. The signatories described the annexation proposal as illegal, warning that it will be a grave violation of international law. They also called on their countries’ parliaments to vote in favor of recognizing the state of Palestine. Israel announced last month that it will formally annex the Jordan valley and all settlements in the West Bank. The announcement is part of the U-S so-called Deal of the Century that was unveiled in January. The Israeli annexation plan has not only drawn fierce backlash from the Palestinians but also from many countries around the globe including Washington’s western allies.
