Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has rejected international demands for a permanent settlement with Palestinians and opposed the unilateral recognition of the Palestinian state. Netanyahu stated that such an arrangement would only be reached through direct negotiations between the parties without preconditions. He also noted that Israel would continue to oppose the unilateral recognition of a Palestinian state, as it would give a huge reward to unprecedented terrorism and prevent any future peace settlement.

The US and several Arab countries are finalizing a long-term peace plan between Israel and Palestinians, which includes a firm timeline for the establishment of a Palestinian state that could be announced as early as the next several weeks. Israel occupied East Jerusalem during the 1967 Arab-Israeli War and annexed the entire city in 1980, claiming all of Jerusalem as its “eternal and undivided” capital in a move never recognized by the international community. The Palestinians hope to establish an independent state of their own in the Gaza Strip and West Bank with East Jerusalem as its capital. Israel has pounded the Gaza Strip since an Oct. 7 attack by Hamas, killing over 28,600 Palestinians and causing mass destruction and shortages of necessities.

The Israeli war on Gaza has pushed 85% of the territory’s population into internal displacement amid acute shortages of food, clean water, and medicine, while 60% of the enclave’s infrastructure has been damaged or destroyed, according to the UN. Israel stands accused of genocide at the International Court of Justice, which in an interim ruling in January ordered Tel Aviv to stop genocidal acts and take measures to guarantee that humanitarian assistance is provided to civilians in Gaza.
