The Yesha Council of Jewish Communities in the West Bank on Thursday responded to a Peace Now report issued earlier in the day detailing the scope of construction in the wake of the building freeze saying, “there is nothing to hide in terms of the scope of our building and we aren’t counting the number of Jews who are working to build in our land.”

Yesha Council Director General Naftali Bennett questioned the tone of the Peace Now report which he described as “an unnecessary provocation,” saying, “Why should there be any place in Israel where we are barred from building?”
