Yaalon: Netanyahu was willing to relinquish the Jordan Valley

MK Moshe (Bogie) Yaalon of the Blue and White faction recently participated in a tour of the Jordan Valley and declared: " The Jordan Valley is an inseparable part of the State of Israel. For eternity!"

Yaalon claimed that "Netanyahu was willing to give up the Jordan Valley but I prevented it! This concept that the Jordan Valley is an inseparable part of Israel is based on our security experience over many years."

"Before the last elections, Netahyahu's annexation spin was initiated with an empty promise, which conveys nothing but political interests and political survival. Not only did this prove to be unhelpful, but it also hurt the State of Israel. The Jordan Valley suffers from electrical power problems, as well as a shortage of water and manufacturing facilities. It is the Israeli government's responsibility to invest in the Jordan Valley, develop and nurture it. We will strengthen settlements and turn the Jordan Valley into Israel's eastern shield."
