Government okays NIS 62 million allocation to West Bank settlements

The government on Sunday approved an allocation of NIS 62 million to the settlements in light of the worsening security situation in Judea and Samaria that has caused increased security challenges and hurt businesses.

“Today, the Cabinet will discuss an assistance plan to strengthen communities in Judea and Samaria,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at the opening of the cabinet meeting. “This entails the work of many ministries on behalf of the residents there and will – inter alia – strengthen security, assist small businesses and encourage tourism.”
