Chairman of the Council of Jewish Communities in Judea and Samaria Danny Dayan on Sunday criticized a government decision to approve hundreds of building permits in the wake of a terror attack that left five members of one family dead in the Itamar settlement over the weekend.

"The government's decision is a small move in the right direction, given that construction in Yehuda and Shomron stands at a negative index of thousands of housing units," he said.

Dayan added, "The government should approve additional construction and of course, should finally approve the master plan for Itamar and to build a new neighborhood in it in the name of those murdered."

"This is unfortunately," he said, "the first time since the formation of the second Netanyahu government that new housing has been approved and it's a pity that parents and their children needed to be murdered for it to do so."
