The head of the Israeli Settlements Council in the northern occupied West Bank (Yos Dagan), according to the Russian-speaking Israeli website Meg News, said: “Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said some important things and some things that should never be accepted. His statements not to establish a terrorist state in the middle of the country are important statements. But his statements not to impose sovereignty on the West Bank are unacceptable, as is his statements about limiting construction in proportion to natural growth. We do not accept the situation of restricting construction as is the case now.
Dagan described “sovereignty over the occupied West Bank as a moral imperative and the duty of every prime minister in Israel.
