Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz (Likud) said on Wednesday that adopting the Levy Report does not necessarily mean extending Israeli sovereignty over Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria.

Speaking to Israel Radio, Katz said adopting the report could help regularize and normalize life in the West Bank settlements.

The Levy Report, published three months ago by retired Supreme Court justice Edmond Levy, found that Israeli settlement in the West Bank is legal under international law and recommended that the government avoid demolishing illegal outposts.
