“We have promised to promote construction in Judea and Samaria and we are keeping our promise,” Liberman said in a his office’s announcement, noting that “the 2,500 new housing units we will approve next week in the planning council are for immediate construction in 2018.”

“In the coming months we will approve thousands of additional housing units,” Liberman extended his promises. “We will continue to develop Judea and Samaria with action.”

And now we’ll start the countdown for these latest Liberman promises to come true. As you probably know, there have been a few already.
