Foreign Ministry: The Netanyahu-Ben Gvir agreement is a broad call for an escalation in the violence

RAMALLAH, Monday, November 28, 2022 (WAFA) - The agreement between Israeli Prime Minister-Designate Benjamin Netanyahu and extremist Itamar Ben Gvir is a broad call for an escalation in the violence in the conflict, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said today.

It also condemned in a statement Israeli government plans to start building 9,000 settlement units on the former Jerusalem Airport land in occupied Jerusalem, which will isolate northern Jerusalem from its Palestinian surroundings, as well as statements by members of the next right-wing coalition headed by Netanyahu, particularly by the racist Ben Gvir and his followers regarding allowing Jews to pray at the Muslim holy site, Al-Aqsa Mosque, easing open fire policy at Palestinians, and allocating huge budgets to legalize dozens of settlement outposts in the occupied territories.

“All of this would deepen and increase Jewish terrorism and armed settler militias in the occupied West Bank,” warned the Foreign Ministry, holding Netanyahu fully responsible for this extremist and racist policy and its repercussions.
