The bill, which aims to safeguard Israel's control over Jerusalem by requiring a two-thirds majority vote in parliament to cede control of parts of the city, was approved last month by the Knesset's Constitution, Justice and Law Committee for its second and third readings and was expected to pass in the plenum during a final vote this week.

Democratic US senators have called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday to stop the planned demolition of twoillegally built Palestinian villages, claiming that the move could endanger Israel's future.

The vote was scheduled to take place on Monday, five days after US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, while saying that Israel and the Palestinians should determine its borders.

Protests were staged in the French capital Paris on Saturday in objection to US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Bayit Yehudi chairman Naftali Bennett pushed the bill, which was submitted by MK Shuli Moalem-Refaeli of his party.

The Obama administration had previously put pressure on Jerusalem on the issue, threatening a severe response if Israel acted in accordance with its own law.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu decided not to bring to vote this week the United Jerusalem bill that is meant to make negotiations concerning the holy city's future more difficult.

Pushing off the bill is seen as an effort by Netanyahu to avoid further Palestinian ill-feeling towards Pence in the lead up to his visit, the Hadashot TV report said.
