Reports: PM, Gantz to travel to Washington next week for peace plan’s unveiling

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White party chief Benny Gantz are both expected to be invited to the White House next week for the unveiling of the administration’s long-gestating peace plan, according to multiple local reports.

Channel 12 reports, without citing sources, that the plan is the most generous ever toward Israel; provides for Israeli sovereignty over all settlements; details a significant moving of Israel’s borders eastwards; ultimately provides for recognition of Palestinian statehood.

But the report adds that the expectation is that the Palestinians will reject it, possibly allowing for Israel to then act unilaterally, such as with the Israeli leadership’s stated plans to annex parts of the West Bank.
