Danon: Implement Sovereignty in Yesha


Deputy Knesset Speaker Danny Danon is initiating the process for declaring Israeli sovereignty in Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria in reaction to the application by the Palestinian Authority (PA) to the United Nations, on Thursday, for recognition as a sovereign state. Earlier, fellow Likud Member of Knesset Tzipi Hotovely called for such an action.

Both Knesset members referred to the unilateral PA action as a violation of the Oslo Accords, which created the authority.
