Israelis view the Jordan Valley from a lookout point near the west bank settlement of Petzael January 1, 2014. A panel of Israeli cabinet ministers endorsed proposed legislation on Sunday to annex an area of the occupied West Bank likely to be the eastern border of a future Palestinian state. The Jordan Valley region of the West Bank which Israel captured in a 1967 war and Palestinians seek as part of their future state, has been a focus of recent disagreement. Palestinians reject Israel's demand to maintain a security presence there. REUTERS/ Baz Ratner (WEST BANK - Tags: POLITICS REAL ESTATE BUSINESS SOCIETY) less
