Israeli settler leaders to join Netanyahu in Washington for Trump talks

Four major settler leaders plan to join Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Washington to receive information on US President Donald Trump’s peace plan to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, known as the “Deal of the Century.”

Netanyahu will meet with Trump on Monday and Tuesday. Yesha head and Jordan Valley Regional Council head David ElHayani will join Netanyahu’s entourage. Elhayani will be accompanied by Gush Etzion Regional Council head Shlomo Ne’eman, Binyamin Regional Council head Yisrael Ganz and Yesha foreign envoy Oded Revivi, who is also the Efrat Council head.

They will not be in the White House, but will be briefed by Netanyahu in real time.

These leaders have been supportive of Netanyahu’s efforts, even though earlier Sunday ElHayani spoke of his opposition to the creation of a Palestinian state, such as the one that is expected to be part of Trump’s peace plan.

Samara Regional Council head Yossi Dagan is also flying to Washington but will not be joining Netanyahu.
