OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli ministerial committee entrusted with legislation has endorsed a draft law in the name of the government making it imperative to hold a referendum on any future Israeli withdrawal from land under “Israel’s sovereignty”.

A spokesman for the Israeli justice ministry told the AFP on Monday that the law also stipulates that no such referendum would be needed if two thirds majority in the parliament (80 out of 120 deputies) approved any agreement on withdrawal from the Golan Heights or “Eastern Jerusalem”.

The draft law, if finally endorsed, practically meant that it would be impossible to ensure any authorization for such a withdrawal.
