The United States said Wednesday that it opposed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's plan to examine the legality of settler homes on privately owned Palestinian land.

The US said the Israeli plan to "legalize settlement outposts" was contradictory to Israeli "commitments and obligations," and would hinder US peace efforts, AFP reported.
