ALBAWABA - The United States welcomed the Israeli announcement regarding the halt of the judicial amendment.
The U.S. said that the decision to postpone judicial reforms in Israel is an opportunity for further settlement.
The U.S. further added that allegations of its support for demonstrations against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are "baseless and invalid."
It is closely observing the situation in Israel and strongly urging its partners to reach a settlement as soon as possible.
"A settlement is exactly what we have been calling for, and we continue to strongly urge Israeli leaders to find a compromise as soon as possible," White House Press Secretary Karen Jean-Pierre stated.

Previously, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and U.S. President Joe Biden raised their concerns about judicial reform suggested by the Israeli prime minister.
On Monday, Netanyahu announced the postponement of the vote on the judicial amendments for this session of the Knesset until a consensus is reached.
His decision comes after weeks of protests against the amendments, amid expectations of a breakout of a civil war if the protests continue.
