More than a hundred intellects of international law belonging to various reputed universities have written a letter to Israel authorities warning them against annexation of West Bank. They stated that the annexation of West Bank would be null, void and lead each one of them to international criminal liability.

The letter further contends that the annexation would “constitute a flagrant violation of bedrock rules of international law, and would also pose a serious threat to international stability in a volatile region.

Last month, Netanyahu has pledged to permanently seize Palestinian territory by annexing some 30 percent of the West Bank in July thereby extending Israeli sovereignty. Even Egypt and Russia deterred Israel of its plan to annex.
