Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu promised to form an outpost committee by the end of the week when he spoke with the Likud faction in the Knesset on Monday and with Likud ministers on Sunday prior to the cabinet meeting at his Jerusalem office. Netanyahu initially pledged to create such a committee on October 11, but to date has yet to do so.


The panel is expected to be composed of legal experts who will examine land statuses in Judea and Samaria, including land privately owned by Palestinians on which Israeli homes have been constructed without full authorization.

The Likud politicians who proposed the committee hope that it will prevent any future demolitions of such homes.
