A regional council in the West Bank has announced established two new settlements in response to the murder of the three Israeli teens presumed to be kidnapped in the West Bank.

 

 

The Gush Etzion Regional Council established the Ramat HaShlosha (The Three Heights) and Talmi Haim (Grove of Life) in memory of Eyal Yifrach, Gil-Ad Shaer and Naftali Frenkel.

The three boys were found dead Monday after being presumed kidnapped since June 12. The names of the newly established settlements, in particular Ramat HaShlosha, were decided upon to honor the three kids.

Head of the Gush Etzion Regional Council David Pearl said that his intentions were to construct hundreds of new housing units in the new settlements. "The murderers wanted to harm and weaken the settlements and we have one answer: to strengthen or unity on the ground and construction on the last where the kidnapping took place."

 

Pearl's deputy, Moshe Seville added, "The creation of the two new towns in the center of eastern Etzion is a clear and concise statement: Gush Etzion is an indivisible part of the State of Israel. This is the first step in establishing sovereignty over the entire region."

 

Dozens of civilians arrived in Kiryat Arba overnight to begin building Talmi Haim and the Council said that they already have a waiting list for people who want to come live in the new settlements.
