Civil Administration officers began distributing orders to West Bank council heads on Friday, ordering them to cease issuing construction permits in the settlements. The orders came two days after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu announced a ten-month moratorium on settlement construction. Also Friday, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said that his ministry had taken photographs of settlement from an aircraft, in order to document construction.
