Meretz party leader Zehava Gal-On reacted on Monday to the government decision to expand state land in West Bank saying that with it the government "spits in the face of Israel's moderate partner in the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas."

She also stated that, "The decision to expand government land in Gush Etzion and hand it over to settlers reveals again what has been a known fact, that the government of Israel works in the interests of settlers and that the objective of this expansion is to create a continuous line of territory between the green line and Betar Illit and Kfar Etzion."
