Likud MK Tzipi Hotovely threatened on Sunday that she and other Likud members will stop voting with the coalition if settler homes continue to be destroyed in the West Bank.

“Destroying outposts is a red line, which will prevent us from opposing a vote of no confidence in the government,” Hotovely wrote in an article published in the Small World religious newsletter distributed in synagogues last weekend.

Hotovely’s article referred to the planned razing of 160 West Bank homes in the months between Succot and Hanukka. She pointed out that many of the neighborhoods set to be destroyed were built with approval from the Housing Ministry.
