Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, announced on Sunday that his government is working hard to make the West Bank an integral part of Israel, Shehab News Agency reported.

During the weekly meeting of his cabinet, Netanyahu announced the names of the team who started working to draw the new maps of the West Bank and Israeli borders, based on the “Deal of the Century”.

The team consists of Likud minister, Yariv Levin, in addition to Meir Ben-Shabbat and Ronen Peretz. The team will obtain assistance from the US ambassador in Israel.

“This team will achieve sovereignty over the remaining part of our country in the West Bank, Jordan Valley and the north of the Dead Sea,” Netanyahu disclosed, noting these areas are “integral parts of the state of Israel”.
