The Security Cabinet on Sunday discussed the regulation of several outposts in Judea and Samaria and officially recognizing them as towns.

According to government officials, the ministers also discussed new building permits in Judea and Samaria in response to the growing wave of terrorism and the deadly terror attacks in Jerusalem.

At the start of the cabinet meeting Sunday morning, Netanyahu stated that in response to the attack on Friday, "This week, we will pass MK Ofir Katz's bill to rescind terrorists' citizenship and to deport them. I repeat this since this is my policy: the correct answer to terror is to strike it relentlessly and to deepen our roots in our land.

The cabinet will meet today to prepare for a widespread operation against those who commit terror and their supporters in eastern Jerusalem and in Judea and Samaria while preventing harm to non-combatants as much as possible. Likewise, the cabinet will appoint a cabinet to strengthen the settlement of our land, which the terrorists are trying to uproot."
