OIC rejects Israel’s plan to annex Palestinian lands

  • Israeli annexation could result in about 4.5 percent of Palestinians in the West Bank “living in enclaves within annexed territory,” according to the BBC

DUBAI: Israel’s plan to annex Palestinian land is considered a flagrant violation of international law and human rights, state news agency SPA reported citing the Independent Permanent Commission for Human Rights of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
Earlier in July, Jordan’s Prime Minister said the Kingdom would look “positively” on the creation of a binational state that guarantees equal rights to Israelis and Palestinians if Israel’s proposed annexation of parts of the occupied West Bank closes the door on a two-state solution.
Israeli annexation could result in about 4.5 percent of Palestinians in the West Bank “living in enclaves within annexed territory,” according to the BBC.
