Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu asked Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein to provide an opinion by the end of the week on the Levy report, which states that West Bank settlements are legal under international law.

Netanyahu made his statement on Sunday at the weekly meeting of Likud ministers, according to an official who was at the meeting.

The government commission report, which also calls for the authorization of West Bank outposts when possible, was submitted to Netanyahu in July.

At the time Netanyahu said he would bring to the Ministerial Committee on Settlements for debate, but never made good on that pledge, in spite of pressure to do so from his party’s right wing flank.
