The ECAJ is closely monitoring developments in Israel regarding the possible extension of Israeli sovereignty over some parts of the West Bank (Judea and Samaria). At present, no announcement has been made as to whether any such action will take place, and if so, over what areas and on what terms. It is also unclear whether or not the extension of sovereignty would be in the context of the resumption of negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. The ECAJ is in close consultation with partner organisations in Australia and abroad and will comment further as the facts become known.
