Netanyahu ally confirms delays in West Bank annexation plan

JERUSALEM (AP) — An ally of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has confirmed that the Israeli leader’s plan to annex parts of the occupied West Bank would not start on its original target date. Netanyahu had aimed to start the process by Wednesday. Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson made an extraordinary appeal to Israel to call off the plan in a front-page newspaper op-ed. The developments cast further uncertainty over whether Israel will ultimately follow through on the explosive annexation initiative, which has drawn fierce international condemnations from some of Israel’s closest allies.
