Israel expressed its anger after a White House video promoting US president Donald Trump’s first foreign trip showed a map of Israel without the Palestinian areas that were occupied in 1967.
According to Ynet news website, right-wing justice minister Ayelet Shaked (Bayit Yehudi) lashed out at the White House for publishing a map of Israel without the West Bank, east Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip and the Golan Heights.
“I hope this is just ignorance and not policy,” Shaked said.
Speaking at an event held on Friday in Tel Aviv’s Ramat Gan district, Shaked reminded her audience that her party was given a mandate to prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state.
“We were not elected to keep chairs warm, but rather to implement clear policy, ensure that no Palestinian state is established and to ensure that the (US) embassy is moved (to Jerusalem),” she said.
