Israel green-lighted Wednesday over 2,000 new housing units for Israeli towns in Judea and Samaria, ending an eight-month de facto freeze on approval for new homes.
The Civil Administration’s Higher Planning Committee approved on Wednesday 2,166 new housing units in Judea and Samaria, with the committee expected to meet again Thursday to approve close to 3,000 additional housing units, for a total of roughly 5,000 units.
This is the first time since February that the Higher Planning Committee approved new housing units in Judea and Samaria. Also of note is that after 20 years, Pnei Kedem in Gush Etzion, will be officially recognized on the Land Registry.
Shlomo Ne’eman, Gush Etzion Regional Council head, lauded the decision: “Sovereignty is about more and more Jews who establish their homes in the land of their ancestors for now and forever. And for that, a big thank you and congratulations are due to Prime Minister Netanyahu, who despite being busy with his intense involvement in current issues, is also advancing strategic plans to strengthen our hold on Judea and Samaria.”
AFSI is pleased to see another level of development on the road to applying full Sovereignty being implemented.
