Israeli minister calls for annexation of West Bank if Palestinians declare a state

A minister in the Israeli government has called for parts of the occupied West Bank to be annexed by the Zionist state if the Palestinians get UN recognition of an independent state. Gilad Erdan told Radio Israel that a unilateral declaration of independence by the Palestinians would "break the rules of the game".

Fellow Knesset member Danny Danon added that more than half of Likud ministers and MKs agree with annexing "West Bank assets" to Israel if the Palestinians declare a Palestinian state unilaterally.
