Report: Netanyahu Won't Announce Building in Samaria

Channel 2 news reported Wednesday night that Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu won't announce the issuing of tenders of construction of new housing units in Judea and Samaria contrary to what was previously anticipated. United States Secretary of State John Kerry is scheduled to arrive in Israel on Thursday for his latest visit to move along talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The announcement of construction plans would likely upset the PA negotiating team.
