The White House today flatly denied Israeli claims that talks are underway to annex land claimed by Palestinians, in a rare public show of disunity.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he had been in talks with Washington about annexing settlements in the occupied West Bank, a move that could shatter a peace process that is already on life support.
That was denied by White House spokesman Josh Raffel, who works closely with Jared Kushner.
"Reports that the United States discussed with Israel an annexation plan for the West Bank are false," he said.
