#PODCAST - Israeli annexation of Palestine put on hold

By Newsbreak Producer, Tashlan Naidoo - The move by Israel to begin a process of annexation of the Palestinian territory and take about 30 percent of land in Palestine has been put on hold. That's according to Executive Director at the Afro Middle East Centre, Naeem Jeenah. He says this is as a result of a discussion between Israel and the United States of America - citing one of the reasons being that America wants the move to happen closer to their presidential elections in November. Jeenah says this is not a new move by Israel - and more of a formal declaration, as they have been trying to take over Palestinian land for many years
