Bennett vows Golan construction, attacks previous government for ‘stagnation’

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett tells the Knesset that his government will significantly boost construction in the Golan Heights.

He touts his government’s COVID-19 policy of avoiding lockdowns and keeping the economy open, while opposition members shout that it has cost Israel many lives.

Bennett attacks the previous government: “We have gone through two years of stagnation: on Iranian nukes, in housing and heavy traffic on the roads. For two years everything was stuck. Three and a half months after we started, we can already see results. Israel is open, we celebrated openly during the festival period despite the predictions of lockdown.”
