Also commenting on the recent settlement freeze decision was retired Lt.-Col. Zvi Keren, who told Army Radio later on Tuesday that "after the halt [in settlement construction], there might someday come an evacuation." Keren stressed that Israelis could not continue to "inhabit every hill in Judea and Samaria," as the only possible solution to the conflict in the region was "two states for two peoples." "It's a tactical maneuver, not a strategic one," said Keren, conceding that "as time goes by, the evacuation of Jews becomes more and more difficult."
