PM: Plenty of Places to Build in Yesha


Speaking at a Likud faction meeting Monday afternoon, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu suggested that residents of Judea and Samaria “avoid illegal building. You can be loyal to the Land of Israel and still build within the restrictions of the law. There are plenty of places where you can build that will not encroach on someone else's private property.”

Netanyahu added that “settlement in Judea and Samaria is important to me as well, but it must be clear: We will operate according to the law. Our objective must be to strengthen communities in Judea and Samaria, not to create legal problems or political fights.”
