On Day of Hebron House Evacuation, Netanyahu Says He Wants to Legalize Some Judea and Samaria Outposts
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he will submit a plan to legalize several Judea and Samaria outposts and avoid the demolition of another.
At Wednesday’s Cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said he asked Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein to “find a solution” for the Ulpana neighborhood in Beit El “that would obviate the need for demolition.” The government had previously agreed to evacuate the illegal outpost by May.
Netanyahu also told the ministers that he will submit, with the recommendation of Defense Minister Ehud Barak, a plan to legalize the outposts of Bruchin, Sansana and Rechalim, which are said to be built on private Palestinian land.
The announcement came as Jewish settlers who last week occupied a house in Hebron near the Cave of the Patriarch were evacuated by Israeli security forces.JTA
