Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office says Israel has told the US it won’t legalize any further West Bank outposts “in the coming months” beyond the nine wildcat communities that the government legalized last week.

“Israel didn’t commit to stop destroying illegal [Palestinian] buildings in Area C,” the Prime Minister’s office says in a statement, referring to parts of the West Bank under full Israeli control.
