Livni Opposes Etzion Bloc Land Bid


Justice Minister Tzipi Livni (Hatnua) expressed her opposition Sunday to the government's decision to declare 4,000 dunams (about 1,000 acres) in the Etzion Bloc as state land, in response to the murders of three Jewish teens on June 12.

Livni told IDF Radio that she was powerless, however, to prevent the decision, which was announced by the IDF's Coordinator for Government Activity in the Territories (COGAT).
