Israeli Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich announced on social media platform X that the Jewish settlements of Beit Hogla, Avigail and Asael in the West Bank and Jordan Valley will be legalized.
Smotrich used the following statements:
“Great things are happening in the settlements, they encourage the racist, Zionist and right-wing national government that cares about the development of settlements in the West Bank for the benefit of the Israeli state. We promised the people that the policy will be changed. We are making slow progress. Congratulations to the entire settlement movement and those who reside there.”
On the other hand, in the news on the television channel 7 of the settlers in the region, it was reported that the Commander of the Israeli Army Central Command signed the decision to start the work on the arrangement of the settlements.
About 700,000 Jewish settlers live in about 300 illegal and illegal settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Jewish settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem are considered illegal under international law.
