Education Minister Naftali Bennett spoke on Sunday morning about the issue of applying Israeli sovereignty to the Jerusalem-area city of Ma'ale Adumim.

"By the end of January, we will have submitted a proposal to apply Israeli law in Ma'ale Adumim," Bennett promised on Twitter. "I expect every member of the government to support this law."

On Saturday night, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home) spoke about the possibility of annexing Ma'ale Adumim, as well as the rest of Area C.

The Israeli government has not yet issued an official response to the UN Security Council's recent anti-Israel resolution. The reason for this is assumed to be concern over possibly vengeful actions the Obama administration may take before leaving office on January 20.
