Rivlin says West Bank settlement of Ariel ‘inseparable’ from Israel

President Reuven Rivlin says that the West Bank settlement of Ariel will forever remain under Israeli control during a meeting with representatives of Ariel University in his office in Jerusalem,

“It’s obvious to everyone that Ariel would be an inseparable part of Israel in any future accord,” the president says.

With a population of some 20,000, Ariel is the fourth-largest settlement (after Modiin Illit, Beitar Illit and Ma’aleh Adumim) and is situated in the heart of the northern West Bank.
