[ 10/07/2012 – 01:46 PM ]


NAZARETH, (PIC)– A report prepared by three judges appointed by Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu recommended that the settlements and outposts built on Palestinian lands in the West Bank are legitimate, according to the Hebrew media on Monday.

The judges led by former member of the Israeli high court Edmund Levy was delegated last January to investigate the legal status of randomly-built settlements and escalate recommendations in this regard.

In their 89-page report, they recommended that these settlements were built with the government’s approval, so the settlers could assume that their authorities’ work legally.

They also said the settlers have the right to reside anywhere in the West Bank, especially in the areas under Israeli control, according to the agreements signed with the Palestinian authority.
