    Israel is a few days away from beginning to annex nearly a third of the occupied West Bank.

    But as the July 1 start date set by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu approaches, a workable plan remains unclear.

    The United States is backing the annexation if Netanyahu can reach an agreement with his coalition partner, Benny Gantz.
