Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu promised on Tuesday at a Likud-Beytenu campaign rally to continue building in the settlements.
"We did a lot to strengthen the settlements [in the past four years], and in the next four years we'll continue to do a lot to strengthen the settlements," he said.
Netanyahu commented that while Israel is reaching out to the Palestinians in order to achieve a true and mutual peace agreement, his party will continue safeguarding the security interests of the people of Israel despite international pressure.
