PM to meet balking Likud members on new freeze
The West Bank residents are calling this a "warning strike" that is meant to caution the government of the dangers of an additional construction freeze.
Over 70 buses of demonstrators are expected to reach the Prime Minister's Office at 10:00 a.m. Sunday.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is on the verge of agreeing to another
90-day settlement moratorium to facilitate negotiations with the
Palestinians in exchange for a squadron of planes and a package of
written US commitments. He is expected to meet with Likud ministers
opposing the proposal on Sunday morning.
