Fatah and Hamas slam 'US-enabled' Israeli resolution on West Bank annexation

Both rival Palestinian political groups have slammed a non-binding resolution passed by the ruling Israeli Likud party, which calls for the annexation of West Bank territory that the Palestinians see as their future state.

On Sunday, the Likud Central Committee unanimously approved a non-binding resolution to annex Israeli settlements in Judea and Samaria in the West Bank. The document also recognized the decades-old Israeli stance on Jerusalem, which calls the city the "eternal capital" of the Jewish state. While it has no legal effect, the symbolic proclamation directly endorses the expansionist policies of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which are in the spotlight following the US recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital in December.
