JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said international pressure over West Bank construction is growing and criticized settlers seeking new construction tenders.
Netanyahu also said during a meeting of Likud Party ministers that the government would try to preserve existing construction.
"We are currently making efforts to maintain the existing construction, but we must understand that we are in a very difficult international reality," Netanyahu said Monday.
