PM: I wanted to make annexation announcement last week

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he wanted to make his pledge to annex the Jordan Valley last week, but was deterred by opposition from Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit.


Netanyahu announced Tuesday that he intended to implement Israeli sovereignty in the area of the West Bank if he wins the upcoming elections.


"I wanted to bring the resolution to the Knesset last week," the prime minister told activists in Hadera. "The attorney general told me it was impossible as we are in a transition government" ahead of next week's national ballot.
