BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:26 A.M.) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated his “promise to build a new community” for evacuees of the dismantled Amona settlement at a cabinet meeting in Jerusalem on Thursday.

Netanyahu said he would meet again on Friday with US President Donald Trump’s envoy to Israel Jason Greenblatt with the intention “to reach an agreed-upon policy regarding settlement construction.” The announcement was met with applause from transportation Minister Israel Katz.

On Monday Netanyahu and Greenblatt met to discuss efforts to coordinate a shared approach on the issue of settlements.

Netanyahu said in Hebrew: “Good morning. This afternoon I will meet again with President Trump’s envoy, Jason Greenblatt. We are in the midst of a process of dialogue with the White House and our intention is to reach an agreed-upon policy regarding settlement construction. Agreed-upon for us, of course, not just for the American side. Naturally, this will be good for the State of Israel since we have not been in these processes for many years. To the residents of Amona, I reiterate: I gave you a promise to build a new community and I will honour that commitment.”
