Defense Minister Naftali Bennett on Sunday ordered the coordinator of government actions in the liberated territories and the IDF civil administration in Judea and Samaria to notify the Hebron municipality of the initial planning for a new Jewish neighborhood in the wholesale market complex of Hebron, the Defense Ministry's communications reported.

In related news, the soldiers installed a roadblock at the entrance of Shuhada Street, in the center of Hebron city, in addition to many roadblocks on roads in several areas of Hebron governorate.

The Bennett plan, he wrote in English on Twitter, "is the first tangible result of the USA decision to legitimise colonisation".
