Israel unveils giant West Financial institution land seizure as Blinken visits

An area of about 1,980 acres in the northern Jordan Valley has been declared “state land”, said far-right Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich, who has vowed to expand Jewish settlements in the West Bank, which are regarded as illegal under international law.
