One of the new Likud Knesset members said Sunday that her priority would be to promote legislation for the annexation of the Etzion Bloc, south of Jerusalem, to Israel, Arutz Sheva reported.

Nava Boker visited the Etzion Bloc on Sunday, stopping at the Herodian archeological site, previously the palace of King Herod, and the Oz VeGaon outpost, which was established in memory of three Jewish teenagers murdered in the area last year.

Boker's husband, Hadera police chief Brig.-Gen. Lior Boker, was among the 44 police and firefighters killed in the Carmel Forest fire in 2010.

She also visited several schools in the area, meeting with school officials, teachers, and students to get an impression of how classes are taught. In addition, she met with ambulance, fire, and other rescue officials.

Boker told Gush Etzion regional head Davidi Perl that she intended promoting legislation for the annexation of the region to Israel, Perl thanked her for the visit and her support, saying that her visit showed “a strong connection to the land and its people.”
