Trump backs Netanyahu's election bid



AMERICAN President Donald Trump today backed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's election campaign and revealed that he had talked to him about a possible joint defense deal, the agencies said.

Three days before the election in Israel, Trump wrote on Twitter that he had discussed with Netanyahu an agreement that would “seal the extraordinary alliance of our two countries.”



“I expect to continue those talks after the Israeli election, when we meet at the UN General Assembly next week,” Trump wrote, France Presse reports.

Right-hander Netanyahu runs a dead race with centrists

The two countries are already working closely with information sharing, joint military exercises and military cooperation, and the agreement would create new obligations, notably the United States' automatic intervention in the event that Israel is attacked.

Right-hander Netanyahu is running a dead race with centrists and in order to win his closeness to Trump, but also to Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom he visited this week.

Netanyahu's main contender is Benny Gantz

The leader of the centrist, Netanyahu's main contender, Benny Gantz dismissed the idea of ​​the alliance as a “grave mistake” as Israel would lose military autonomy.

“We never asked anyone to die for us. And we never asked anyone's permission to defend Israel,” Gantz said, Reuters reported.

Netanyahu announces annexation plan for Jordan Valley

Netanyahu, who won the April election but was unable to form a coalition and called new elections, on Tuesday announced a plan to annex the Jordan Valley, much of the West Bank, if he wins the election next week.

Israeli commentators interpret the announcement of annexation as a ploy by far-right voters who have long advocated annexation of Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

The annexation plan was condemned by Arab nations

Israel occupied the West Bank in the 1967 war, and Palestinians seek to annex the area to a future state.

The annexation plan was condemned by the Arab nations, the United Nations and the European Union expressed concern, but the United States did not respond and did not mention Trump in its announcements on Saturday.

In the Jordan Valley, about 65,000 Palestinians and 11,000 Israeli settlers

About 65,000 Palestinians and 11,000 Israeli settlers live in the Jordan Valley and on the shores of the northern Dead Sea, according to data from the Israeli human rights group B'Tselem. The main Palestinian area is Jericho, which has about 28 villages and smaller Bedouin communities.

Trump, who is the most affectionate of Israel of all US presidents so far, has vowed to present a peace plan for Israel and the Palestinians after the election in Israel.
