Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked this morning took part in a demonstration by residents and local council heads of Judea and Samaria opposite the Prime Minister's Office.

"We'll vote today at the Ministerial Committee on Legislation on the Fabric of Life Law that will regulate young settlement in Judea and Samaria," declared Minister Shaked.

"In the last three years we've taken significant steps in the area of ​​regulation," she said, adding that last week the Attorney General published an opinion that would allow regulating settlement that deviated from the blue line. This is more than 2,000 houses. Young settlement could also be regulated by the executive branch. Since that's not happening we'll pass the law and I hope within two years all the young communities will become permanent settlements.

"We ask the Prime Minister to regulate Ofra, which is one of the building blocks of settlement in Judea and Samaria. There is an opinion prepared and decisions must be made. We have to expand the settlement. Both Plot 84 and also regulating the entire settlement. There are hundreds of housing units in Har Bracha that only require building permits, and this is definitely something the Prime Minister should be demanded to do soon," added Shaked.

"I think the State of Israel needs a full-time Defense Minister, and Naftali Bennett is the most suitable for this. We need to do a lot of things that aren't being done: Stop the inflated salaries of terrorists and their families. No civilized country would allow it and there's no reason for us to allow it. We need to increase house demolitions," emphasized the Minister.
