After some West Bank building approved, settlement council demands homes get OK

The Yesha Council settlements umbrella group is demanding the Defense Ministry convene its higher committee to approve the building of West Bank settlement homes, after a panel approves some 31 building projects.

“We’ve been waiting for half a year for the approval of homes and it still hasn’t happened,” it says. “The building committee must immediately convene to approve the building of housing units throughout the region. We’ve waited long enough.”
