RAMALLAH (Dispatches) – Palestine on Wednesday warned that the Zionist regime’s plan to annex parts of the West Bank territory will extend to take over the entire territory, urging the international community to prevent it.
Secretary-General of the Palestine Liberation Organization Saeb Erekat told the official Palestinian radio station that "the Israeli plan is fully backed by the United States.”
"There is an American green light to Israel to go ahead and annex all of the West Bank and East al-Quds, which would be the biggest attempt to take over Palestinian lands and undermine the chances of establishing an independent Palestinian state,” he said.
The Palestinian leadership is holding contacts with world leaders, Erekat added.
He urged the international community to intervene with serious steps to prevent the Zionist regime from going ahead with its plan to take over wide areas of the West Bank.
At the same time, Erekat warned of a possible "escalation” on the ground in light of the Palestinian decision to abolish ties with the Zionist regime and the United States last week over Netanyahu’s move.
Meanwhile, the Secretary General of the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah warned of the Zionist regime’s plans for a Palestinian state in Jordan.
In an interview with Lebanon’s Noor Radio on Tuesday, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah called the Zionist regime a cancerous entity with no credibility in the region.
"Israel aims to occupy the entire Palestine and according to this scheme, Jordan is an alternative home for the Palestinian people,” he was cited as saying by the website of Al Manar TV.
He further asserted that the Zionist regime lacks the courage to wage another war on Lebanon, given the Muslim country’s defensive might.
"We warn Israel against committing a folly by launching the great war, all factions of axis of resistance could engage in such a war,” Nasrallah said.
The Hezbollah leader vowed a firm response to any attacks by the regime’s military, noting that the fake and racist entity would not manage to survive.
