Israel Still Pouring Money into the Settlements

Media reports this week have published the government’s latest decision to declare dozens of settlements as national priority areas, so they can be applicable for further government funding and subsidies.

Hagit Ofran: “The presence of settlements on the list is proof that the government is still financially supporting settlements. Particularly worrying are that so many communities on the list are outside the planned route of the security barrier. Many of these places have permits to build that they have not utilized, and these kind of grants will help these settlements construct further”.
