Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is expected to hold a ministerial meeting this week, possibly as early as Monday, to deal with Jewish homes in the West Bank that are in danger of being evacuated, particularly those that involve private Palestinian property.

Netanyahu called the meeting at the request of Likud ministers Gideon Sa’ar, Yuli Edelstein and Yisrael Katz.

Ministers at the meeting are expected to talk about Beit Hamachpela, the three-story apartment building in Hebron that 15 Jewish families – from that city and the nearby Kiryat Arba settlement – moved into on Thursday without proper permits.
