Annexation and the Aftermath of the US Election
On Tuesday, November 3rd, while the world was busy watching Americans go to the polls, Israel quietly razed an entire Palestinian community in the Jordan Valley, carrying out the “largest West Bank demolition operation in a decade.” This erasure of a Palestinian community was just the latest sign that the Israeli government has accelerated the process of de facto annexation in the West Bank, despite putting formal annexation on hold to pursue normalized relations with various Arab states. 

De facto annexation is likely to accelerate in the lead-up to Joe Biden’s inauguration, especially in Area C, as Israel works to take over more land in a rush to achieve “faits accompli” prior to President Trump leaving office. The current trends suggest a further increase in actions against Palestinians, including home demolitions, state-backed settler violence, and the continuing expansion of settlements.

For updates and analysis, we invite you to join us for a webinar, jointly presented by FMEP and B’Tselem USA, featuring IMEU analyst Diana Buttu, Palestine Institute for Public Diplomacy Executive Director Salem Barahmeh, and B’Tselem Executive Director Hagai El-Ad in conversation with FMEP President Lara Friedman.
