Netanyahu Promises New West Bank Construction, on Heels of Failed Outpost Bill

Netanyahu lashes out at left-wing organizations that have petitioned the High Court of Justice to get such outposts dismantled.

The Knesset decisively defeated a bill on Wednesday, aiming to legalize certain settlement outposts built on privately owned Palestinian land, but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised a series of alternative moves aimed at strengthening West Bank settlements, including the construction of 851 new homes there.
