Netanyahu: Trump ‘recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over all Jewish communities’

Netanyahu says Trump is “puncturing [the] big lie” that Israel is illegally occupying territory of its forefathers. “You are recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over all the Jewish communities, large and small alike.”

He says past plans failed because they “tried to pressure Israel to withdraw from vital territory like the Jordan Valley.”

But Trump “recognized that Israeli must have sovereignty in the Jordan Valley and other strategic areas in Judea and Samaria.”
