"I said there shouldn't be the removal of even one settlement [from the occupied West Bank]", Netanyahu told Israel's Channel 13 television.
"I don't know whether it will be before the elections", he said of the Khan al-Ahmar expulsion, which set off intense global criticism after the village was marked for demolition to make way for an expanded Jewish settlement.
Along with settlements, "our ongoing control of all the territory west of the Jordan" River was a further condition set by the Israeli premier for any USA -led peace initiative.
U.S. President Donald Trump warned on Saturday that a Democratic victory in 2020 could "leave Israel out there", as he highlighted his pro-Israel actions in an effort to make the case for Jewish voters to back his re-election.

Netanyahu's comments on Saturday came just days before the closely fought polls on Tuesday and was widely seen as an appeal to rightwing voters, who do not believe in the feasibility of a peace agreement with the Palestinians.
The chief negotiator for the Palestine Liberation Organization, Saeb Erekat, responded to Netanyahu's statements by attacking both him and the Trump administration. The settlements have also been the most contentious sticking point in the peace negotiations between Israeli and Palestinian leaders, and the talks have remained stalled since 2014.
