Barak: Building moratorium will be fully implemented

Barak Building moratori

Defense Minister Ehud Barak stressed on Tuesday that the security cabinet's decision on a ten-month moratorium on new construction in Judea and Samaria will be fully implemented, Army Radio reported. On Monday settler leaders threatened to ban civil administration inspectors from their communities. The very same inspectors issued 50 stop-work orders at sites where they felt the foundations were not yet properly set. Four bulldozers and tractors, as well as building material, were also confiscated. Barak is currently in the West Bank convening with the military commanders charged with reinforcing the edict.
