Palestinians have long accused Israel of an undeclared, creeping form of annexation on the ground.

Israel and the United Arab Emirates will sign their deal normalising relations at the White House on Tuesday.

The agreement involves Israel shelving plans to annex parts of the occupied West Bank.

And that has prompted protests from leaders of Israeli illegal settlements.

But many of them could end up benefitting from the deal, as Al Jazeera’s Harry Fawcett reports.
