Bennett: We won’t allow any territorial concessions, Palestinian state

Defense Minister Naftali Bennett says his party will not allow any territorial concessions to Palestinians or the establishment of a Palestinian state.

In response to reports that the Trump administration’s peace plan will be unveiled next week and include recognition of a Palestinian state, Bennett says while the president and his administration “are true friends of Israel” and Jerusalem may face “a historic opportunity,” his Yamina alliance of right-wing parties “will not allow land to be handed over to Arabs or the formation of a Palestinian state.”

“We will comment on the details of the plan once they are made public.”
