Minister of Construction Yoav Galant (Kulanu) approved this evening, Thursday, the immediate marketing of 2,086 residential units in Judea and Samaria.

The number of units were approved for the following settlements: Beit Arieh 698 units, Alfei Menashe 630 units, Beitar Elite 660 units and Karnei Shomron 98 units.

The motion received the approval of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman.

Minister Galant: "There is no day more symbolic for construction in Judea and Samaria than the day of Amona's evacuation."

In regard to Amona, Galant stated that "we are a state of law and order and the state executed the Amona evacuation according to the High Court's decision."

Additionally, Galant strongly condemned the handful of rioters and their violence towards security forces during the Amona operation.
