Netanyahu hints at new unilateral moves in West Bank

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday hinted that he could pursue unilateral moves in the West Bank in the absence of a peace process with the Palestinians.

He spoke in advance of US Secretary of State John Kerry’s expected trip to Israel next week, during which the two men will meet for the second time since earlier this month, when they spoke for three hours in Washington.

The prime minister is under pressure from the United States to come up with a plan to preserve the option of a two-state solution in the absence of a renewed peace process. The US also is looking to him to take steps to ease life for Palestinians in the West Bank, despite the wave of Palestinian attacks against Israelis.
