Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has agreed to a two-month extension of the freeze on settlement construction on the condition that it would be the last such moratorium, reported the London-based newspaper al-Sharq al-Awsat on Monday.

The report went on to say that Netanyahu also called for a US guarantee that the IDF could maintain a presence in the Jordan Valley as part of a final peace deal with the Palestinians. According to Netanyahu, 15 ministers oppose the extension on settlement building, eight are in favor of it, and ten are undecided. In the event of a tie between those in favor and those opposed to the extension, Netanyahu will make the final decision, the report stated.
