Eighteen Senate Democrats warned the “Israeli” entity that moving ahead with annexing parts of the West Bank would “fray” bonds with the United States.

The letter released Thursday is addressed to “Israeli” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and War Minister Benny Gantz, the prime minister-designate.

“We write to express our grave concern with provisions in the recently concluded government agreement to consider unilateral annexation of Palestinian territory as early as this July,” the letter said. 

Sens. Chris Murphy of Connecticut, Chris Van Hollen of Maryland and Tim Kaine of Virginia initiated the letter.
This comes as Netanyahu previously announced that he would like to launch annexation of some parts of the West Bank by July 1.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, who is Jewish, sent a separate letter this week cautioning “Israel” that annexation would harm its security.
