Cabinet set to back decision on Ariel University

The government on Sunday is expected to endorse the upgrade to university status for Ariel University Center of Samaria in the West Bank and the appointment of Shai Nitzan to the post of deputy attorney-general for special projects.
Education Minister Gideon Sa’ar plans to bring forward the Ariel proposal, which calls for all necessary steps to be taken to execute the July decision by the Council for Higher Education in Judea and Samaria for the upgrade, saying it is of “national importance.”
