Samaria Council head welcomes connection of Havat Gilad to power

Chairman Yossi Dagan of the Shomron (Samaria) Regional Council has welcomed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's decision to order the immediate connection of the Samarian Jewish community of Havat Gilad to the electricity grid.

The move followed the murder by terrorists of Havat Gil'ad resident Raziel Shevach. Dagan said, "I thank the prime minister for the decision to connect the electricity, and we are looking forward to a government decision to recognize Havat Gilad as a full-fledged community in the State of Israel."
