MK Akunis Blasts Plan to Abandon Jordan Valley

Deputy Minister MK Ophir Akunis (Likud - Beytenu) toured the Jordan valley on Wednesday and decried any potential plan to abandon the area,. "Withdrawal from the valley, uprooting communities and IDF removal would be a strategic error costing all of us dearly," he stated. MK Akunis added, "the Jordan River is Israel's iron wall.
