In Israel, plans to annex parts of the occupied West Bank to the country led thousands of people to take to the streets on Saturday to protest against the plan.

U.S. President Donald Trump unveiled earlier this year his criticized Middle East peace plan, which gave the green light to the annexation of settlements and other strategically important areas in violation of international law to Israel.

On the first day of July, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may submit a proposal for accession to his cabinet and parliament for approval.
