Oren: US offered Israel incentives to encourage freeze

Israel's US envoy Michael Oren reportedly said the US offered Israel "incentives" geared toward encouraging Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu's cabinet to extend the recently expired settlement freeze.
During an interview with Washington Post on Wednesday Oren said that the US "administration has come back to Israel with a number of suggestions - incentives if you would - that would enable the government to maybe pass a limited extension of 2 or 3 months."
