Work Starting on Authorizing Outposts


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has instructed Justice Minister Ya'akov Ne'eman to examine ways to establish an independent team to propose legal solutions and means for authorizing construction in Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria. The instructions were issued in response to a request by Culture Minister Limor Livnat.

Livnat told Arutz Sheva's Hebrew journal that her request is in response to a Supreme Court order to destroy at least 160 homes in the region. She said Ne'eman's assignment is not to find out if the homes can received authorized status but how it can be done.
