Deputy Minister: We'll Continue to Build in Our Land

Deputy Minister Ofir Akunis (Likud) sharply criticized the European Union (EU) and the U.S. State Department on Tuesday, after both issued condemnations of Israel’s plans to declare 4,000 dunams of land in Judea, mostly in Gush Etzion, as state land.

"Israel will continue to work to promote settlement on its land - just as every other country in the world does," declared Akunis.
