Netanyahu halts turbine construction in Golan Heights amid Druze protest

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu decided on Saturday night to withhold working on the construction of turbines in the Golan Heights the next day, following a nightly situation assessment and criticism from local Druze protesters.

This decision came in contrast to National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir's plans for their construction.

Druze protesters shouted threats of "war" in response to Ben-Gvir's plans for the turbines' construction.
