Knesset passes bill to hinder East Jerusalem withdrawal

A new Israeli law makes it harder to hand over parts of Jerusalem to the Palestinians.

The bill passed early on Tuesday and stipulates that two-thirds support is needed in the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, before Israel can relinquish control over any portion of the holy city to a foreign entity, according to local media.
