Barak: I'll Take Down 23 Outposts in a Matter of Weeks


Defense Minister Ehud Barak told U.S. envoy to the Middle East George Mitchell Monday night that he would take down 23 unauthorized outposts in Judea and Samaria over the next few weeks and months. His office said that the meeting between the two was very positive.

“There is progress, but the path is still long,” Barak said with regard to negotiations between Israel and the U.S. “Israel wants to move towards the U.S. with regard to freezing construction in Judea and Samaria.”
