Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon announced on Monday that the government would form a new division responsible for enforcing zoning laws in the West Bank, according to Israel Radio.

The state said that the new department would be responsible for combating building and planning violations by Palestinians in Judea and Samaria.

The new initiative came in response to a High Court petition filed by Regavim, an organization that advocates Israeli sovereignty in the West Bank.
