Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told a group of 15 Likud ministers and MKs on Wednesday night that his definition of settlement blocs was wide.

MK Danny Danon complained about his speech to the Knesset on Monday in which he said he said there was a consensus in Israel about maintaining settlement blocs and implied that he might not keep settlements outside the blocs.

When Culture and Sports Minister Limor Livnat asked Netanyahu to raise the fate of Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard in his meeting with Obama, Netanyahu said the case of Pollard "pained his heart."
