Housing and Construction Minister Uri Ariel (Bayit Yehudi) confirmed to Army Radio on Tuesday that Israeli construction beyond the Green Line has been frozen in order to prevent a diplomatic incident with the US.

According to Army Radio, Ariel said Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu instructed him to freeze building tenders in the West Bank and east Jerusalem following US President Barack Obama's visit to Israel in March.
