Israeli government to vote on bill approving new neighborhood in Gush Etzion and $6,877,920 in compensation for Netiv Ha’avot evacuees.
Government ministers will vote on Sunday on a bill to create a new neighborhood for residents of Elazar’s Netiv Ha’avot neighborhood.
The Supreme Court in December 2016 ordered the destruction of 15 of the houses in Elazar’s Netiv Ha’avot neighborhood, after a disputed strip of land was found to run through them. The remaining homes in the neighborhood are entirely on state land.
Land in Judea and Samaria was once classified as state land, private property or of undefined status. Several years ago, the Supreme Court decided that land of undefined status is to be considered private Arab land.
