Peace Now: Government ‘nurturing welfare state’ beyond Green Line rather than solving housing crisis in Israel proper

The Peace Now settlement watchdog slams the Defense Ministry body’s advancement of over 1,000 settlement homes in the West Bank.

“The government awards prizes to construction offenders in the settlements and continues to adopt a ‘discrimination, cultivation and annexation’ approach.”

“Instead of solving the housing crisis inside Israel (proper), the government prefers to deprive most of its citizens and nurture the welfare state beyond the Green Line, while giving tailwind to the annexation plans of the settler right and harming chances for peace,” said the left-wing NGO in a statement.
