      MK Regev: Start Building at E1


      Likud-Beytenu MK Miri Regev, who heads the Knesset's Interior Committee, called upon Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Thursday to implement his promises to build Jewish neighborhoods at Mevaseret Adumim, also known as the E1 area, east of Jerusalem.

      Netanyahu reportedly froze construction in the area in late 2012, following international pressure.

      He promised to renew construction in the area as part of his election campaign, but has been accused of freezing construction as soon as tenders were announced.
