Netanyahu Invites Judea, Samaria Leaders to Meet

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has invited the heads of localities in Judea and Samaria (Shomron) to meet with him. The meeting will take place on Wednesday afternoon in his office in Jerusalem.
Netanyahu froze construction in Judea and Samaria for several months during his term in office in an attempt to encourage the Palestinian Authority to negotiate, but has since allowed building to resume. His administration recently approved the construction of thousands of new housing units in the region.
