The authorization of three West Bank Jewish outposts – Bruchin, Rehalim and Sansana- will be brought to a cabinet vote in a week's time, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Tuesday at a Likud faction meeting.

Netanyahu also said during the meeting that the apartment buildings in the Ulpana outpost on the outskirts of the Beit El settlements should not be evacuated,and that he was sure another solution could be found.

During the meeting Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar accused the Defense Ministry of delaying construction of West Bank settlements in Bruchin, Rehalim and Sansana. Additionally, Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz and Likud faction chairman Ze'ev Elkin blamed Barak of acting according to political motivations.
