Eyes on Israel polls, Netanyahu welcomes Trump’s Middle East plan
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has described US President Donald Trump’s Middle East plan as a realistic path to a durable peace.
The timing of the Middle East plan, just before a third Israeli election in less than a year, is seen as a boost for Netanyahu’s campaign.
But its effects could start being felt in the occupied West Bank well ahead of the March 2 polls.
Netanyahu said he agreed to negotiate with the Palestinians because the plan struck a balance between the sides.
