Legislation requiring two-thirds of Knesset’s support for dividing city under peace deal will now head to plenum for second and third readings.
The Knesset’s Constitution, Justice and Law Committee on Tuesday green-lighted for its final votes a bill requiring the support of two-thirds of the Knesset to hand over any part of Jerusalem to the Palestinians under a future peace deal.
Following Tuesday’s 9-7 committee vote, the bill was to move forward to its second and third plenum readings, where it was expected to be passed into law. No date has been set for the final votes.
