MK Nurit Koren (Likud) sent a letter to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu today calling on him to act to officially legitimize settlement and to exercise Israeli sovereignty in Judea, Samaria, and the Jordan Valley.

"This is the order of the day. There's a diplomatic and political window of opportunity making it possible to do justice to those settlers who are pioneers, and it should be exploited. In the absence of official regulation, residents face difficulties that make them fourth-class citizens," Koren wrote to Netanyahu.

"We must create a territorial contiguity of settlements in order to prevent a Palestinian takeover of the area, and now is the time to apply Israeli sovereignty and law to the Israeli settlement areas in Judea, Samaria, and the Jordan Valley.

"The days of the hostile administration in the United States have passed and now we're at the most appropriate point in time, since your government has already received an official decision in May 2017 to regulate all young neighborhoods and settlements," concluded MK Koren.
