Report: MK Regev to Propose Annexing Jordan Valley


Member of Knesset Miri Regev (Likud Beytenu) will introduce legislation, next week, to annex the Jordan Valley to Israel, according to a Friday-morning report by the Yisrael Hayom daily. The area has been the topic of reports coming out of talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

A senior Likud source criticized the move, telling the newspaper, "Regev is initiating the bill to get headlines. Even she knows full well that there's no way in the world that such a proposal will pass the Knesset.
