Akunis: We Built and will Continue to Build in Yesha


Deputy Minister Ofir Akunis said, Sunday evening, "Construction in Judea and Samaria (Shomron) will continue - so that a Palestinian state will not be established here." Speaking at the dedication of a new neighborhood for about 100 families in the Samarian Jewish community of Alei Zahav, the Likud Beyteinu Member of Knesset said that recent events in the Middle East are another reason that another Arab state must not arise in the area.

Akunis concluded, "We say, today, to our friends in Washington, London and Europe: We have built in Samaria and Judea - and we will continue to build!"
