The Yesha Council of Jewish Communities in Judea and Samaria announced that in response to last night's murderous attack, it will be “breaking the construction freeze” four weeks early. The Council is galvanizing the Jewish towns and communities in Yesha to begin building new homes as early as this evening.

“In response to the murderous attack of four residents of Beit Haggai,” the Council announced, “let us go out, every community in its area, to break the freeze and begin building. Every community should find, in the coming hours, areas in which it will begin building at 6 PM this evening [Wednesday]. Let us declare, all of us together, the end of the freeze and the resumption of Jewish building in Judea and Samaria!”

Some of the projects that have already been announced for this evening: A kindergarten in Kedumim (central Samaria), a sports hall in Adam (Binyamin region, just north of Jerusalem), and a private home in Beit Haggai (south of Hevron).

Buses from various parts of Israel are also being organized. Information can be found at <>.

The ten-month freeze on Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria announced by the government for the sake of getting the PA to negotiate with Israel is scheduled to end on Sept. 26.
