Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday approved the guidelines for compensating
settlers and others adversely affected by the West Bank construction
outline will be implemented by a professional committee as set forth in
the cabinet decision. The decision requires neither legislation nor
approval from additional forums; therefore, it may be implemented
The plan was prepared by a team led by Cabinet
Secretary Tzvi Hauser. The guidelines set uniform criteria for
providing compensation, on three tracks: To those who purchased
apartments, to contractors and those with building permits, and to
local councils that were adversely affected by the decision.
As a result of the approval, Hauser reached an
agreement with MK Danny Danon (Likud) and MK Uri Ariel (National Union)
regarding the withdrawal of the bills they recently submitted to the
Ministerial Committee on Legislation.
Prime Minister Netanyahu said, "I welcome this just and humanitarian decision."
