Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu leads the weekly cabinet meeting at the Jordan Valley, southern Israel on September 15, 2019.

The government cabinet voted Sunday to approve the establishment of the Jewish community of Mevo’ot Yericho (Mevo’ot Jericho).

The vote took place after Attorney-General Dr. Avichai Mandelblit removed his objections to the resolution.


“We were like dreamers,” said the secretary of the settlement, quoting a chapter from the Book of Psalms. “It’s a historic moment.”
