Building the Road to Sovereignty

Israel’s Defense Ministry has green-lighted planning for what it called a “Sovereignty road” that would allow Palestinian traffic to bypass Jewish neighborhoods in the E1 area.

“We’re applying Sovereignty in deeds, not words,” Defense Minister Naftali Bennett said on Monday.

As part of his re-election campaign, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last month agreed to advance plans for 3,500 new homes in an unbuilt area of the Ma’aleh Adumim area, known as E1.
