12 February, 12:51

    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV, FEBRUARY 12 - Less than a month before March 2 elections in Israel, the main rival of Premier Benyamin Netanyahu, centrist leader Benny Gantz, has ruled out any coalition alliance with Arab parties (United List), adding that, if elected, he means to implement Trump's plan. At the same time, he explained that he does not accept the possibility in the plan that, in an exchange of lands, Arab Israeli cities in the north could go under Palestinian control.

    ''I am not afraid - said Gantz - to speak about any legitimate political party but the List will not be part of the government I will form. My disagreement with the List's leadership on national and security themes are deep, difficult and can't be overcome''. On Trump's plan, Gantz - a former army chief of staff - observed that he means ''to implement it in coordination with all other elements in the region''. (ANSAmed).
