Cabinet to discuss recognizing illegal outposts, Bedouin towns

Despite the political enmity between them, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Benny Gantz have decided to raise the issue of regulating unauthorized West Bank outposts and Bedouin towns at the cabinet meeting today, they say in a joint statement.

Both the outposts and Bedouin areas are seeking government recognition and the supply of utilities.
