Welfare Minister Meir Cohen (Yesh Atid) said on Saturday that Israel should dismantle isolated settlements immediately without waiting for negotiations, Israel Radio reported.   

"These settlements cost us alot of money and we must do the utmost so that Israel is not portrayed to be a state that does everything to avoid negotiations," Cohen said in a cultural event at Holon Theater, adding that "we must sit at the negotiating table and try to achieve peace."

Cohen added that Israel had lost control of the settlers in some instances and in particular it had lost control of the "hill-top youth."

"We must deal with this youth and bring them back to normal behavior," Cohen said.
