Gantz said refusing to back unilateral annexation in West Bank

Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz is refusing to agree to unilateral annexation in the West Bank with US-backing, Channel 12 news reports.

Gantz has previously indicated he backs US President Donald Trump’s peace plan as a basis for negotiation, but not as a basis for unilateral action.

According to the network, coalition negotiations between Blue and White and Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Likud have hit a snag, with the parties at odds over how many ministers there will be in the next government.

The parties are also wrangling over who will be Knesset speaker, justice minister and health minister, with each backing different candidates for the posts.
