What does a Netanyahu election victory mean for Palestinians?

Senior political analyst Marwan Bishara discusses the effect Netanyahu's potential fifth election victory could have on Palestinians living in the occupied West Bank and besieged Gaza Strip.

    Elections results have shown Benjamin Netanyahu on course for a record fifth term as Israeli prime minister.

    Diana Buttu, a Palestinian Haifa-based analyst and former legal adviser to Palestinian peace negotiators, told Al Jazeera that Netanyahu's renewed mandate will allow him to continue his "policies of apartheid, colonisation, and racism".

    Al Jazeera's senior political analyst Marwan Bishara explains why the outcome could have devastating effects on Palestinians as Netanyahu plots to annex Palestinian land in violation of international law.
