BEIRUT, Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- Hezbollah condemned Wednesday Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's plan to annex the Jordan Valley in the occupied West Bank if he wins re-election, local TV Channel Al Jadeed reported.

"This is considered an attack against the Palestinian population who has the entire right to defend any assault against its territories and wealth," a statement by Hezbollah said.

Hezbollah added that all of these Israeli steps will be faced by the unity of the Palestinians.

"These attempts will fail just like the 'Deal of the Century' because Palestine is a right for the Palestinians and nothing will change this reality no matter what the enemy tries to do," it said.

Netanyahu said on Tuesday that he would annex the Jordan Valley in the occupied West Bank right after Israel's Sept. 17 election, if he wins re-election.

Jordan and Saudi Arabia sharply criticized Netanyahu's announcement while Palestinians labeled the move as illegal, and the United Nations said that this measures would destroy any chances for future peace talks.
