      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. Only the presence of the IDF and the pioneers of the valley, will ensure the security of Israeli citizens."
