Israel’s prime minister expressed his support during the Likud meeting at Ma’aleh Adumim, the largest Israeli settlement in the West Bank. The legislation is expected to come into effect in the winter session of Israeli’s parliament the Knesset.
The legislation pushed by the right-wing MPs, was written by Yisrael Katz, a member of Netanyahu’s cabinet and Israel’s Knesset. It will support the “Greater Jerusalem bill” that seeks to add territories of Efrat Betar Illit, Givat Ze’ev and Ma’aleh Adumim to Jerusalem’s municipal boundaries, expanding the area to create a greater metropolitan region and effectively grabbing the land and adding those settlements to Israel.
