OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Hundreds of Jewish rabbis sent a message to Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday telling him that withdrawing troops from the West Bank was religiously forbidden.

The message signed by 350 rabbis protested Netanyahu’s declaration that he was ready to evacuate a number of areas in the West Bank and deliver them to the Palestinian Authority along with readiness to resume negotiations with it.

The rabbis included a Toratic edict in their message which prohibited withdrawing from West Bank land, describing it as the borders of the “Hebrew state”.
