U.S. Envoy Warns Israel Against Annexation Without U.S. Approval

(Bloomberg) -- The U.S. envoy to Israel warned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu against annexing territory in the West Bank without the approval of the Trump administration.

A joint Israeli-American committee must first complete a mapping process before any steps are taken, Ambassador David Friedman said on Twitter.

“Any unilateral action in advance of the completion of the committee process endangers the Plan & American recognition,” Friedman said.
