UPDATE: Palestinian President Abbas declares end to agreements with Israel, U.S.

Germany and the Palestinian Authority released a joint statement on Tuesday expressing "grave concern" over Israel's declared intention to begin annexing parts of the West Bank and the Jordan Valley.

Annexing parts of the West Bank and the Jordan Valley as part of U.S. President Donald Trump's "deal of the century" was a central promise of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's latest election campaign. Former political rivals turned allies Benny Gantz and Gabi Ashkenazi have also expressed their support for the administration's plan.
