The Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee will discuss a bill on Sunday to apply Israeli sovereignty over Jewish outposts in the West Bank, including the disputed Ulpana outpost.

According to the proposal, initiated by Likud MK Miri Regev, the Knesset will only restrict building settlements with Knesset approval, Israel Radio reported.

MKs Yaakov Katz of the National Union party and Zevulun Orlev of Habayit Hayehudi are expected to file similar proposals this week for a preliminary reading.

They are submitting their proposals after the government's ministerial committee previously declined to approve their proposals.
