Netanyahu Legalizes Three Outposts in Judea and Samaria

JewishPress Logo

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has legalized three Jewish outpost communities which were erected in the 1990s.

At a meeting late Monday, a ministerial committee legalized Bruchin (home to 350 residents)  and Rechelim (home to 240 residents) in Samaria, and Sansana (home to 240 residents) in Judea.

Palestinians and Israeli anti-settlement organization Peace Now slammed the government, saying the government is hereby creating new settlements for the first time since 1990.  Israel argued that the move does not establish or expand settlements, nor does it change the facts on the ground.
