Algeria “strongly” condemns Israeli PM pledge to annex Jordan Valley


ALGIERS  – Algeria has “strongly” condemned the announcement of Israeli Prime Minsiter Benjamin Netanyahu, of his intention to annex the Jordan Valley and the northern part of the Dead Sea in West Bank, said Thursday a communiqué of the Foreign Ministry.

“Algeria regards this announcement as a dangerous escalation against the Palestinian people and a further step on the path of systematic land-grabbing practices and the policies of Judaization and purification that the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories engages in to change the geography of occupied Palestine, in flagrant violation of international law, international legality and relevant UN Security Council resolutions, the statement said.

“While reiterating its solidarity and steadfast and consistent support for the State of Palestine and its brotherly people, Algeria urges the international community to rigorously counteract repeated acts of escalation by the occupation authorities and to allow the Palestinian people to recover their legitimate rights, including the establishment of their independent state with Al-Quds as the capital, “added the same source.
