(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said during a Likud ministerial meeting that a bill to okay the Havat Gilad outpost as a settlement will be approved in next week's Cabinet meeting.

Netanyahu said during Sunday’s meeting of the Likud ministers that the issue of Havat Gilad will be raised at the cabinet meeting next week and be approved.

Netanyahu added that the approbation will be issued in partnership with Israel’s War Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

Netanyahu claimed the delay in raising the status issue was due to tactical reasons, and that the issue will be raised next week, in coordination with Lieberman.

Havat Gilad is an Israeli outpost built on Palestinian land in the occupied West Bank. It has been considered an unauthorized outpost by the Israeli government and is on a list of outposts the international community expects to be dismantled.

Then, on January 9 this year, an extremist rabbi died in an anti-occupation shooting attack in the area. The Israelis vowed that the outpost will be regulated and restored as an act of revenge.
