Lapid: West Bank land seizure harms Israel

 

Finance Minister Yair Lapid addressed Israel's move to expropriate some 4,000 dunam of West Bank land.

 

Speaking at Calcalists Economic Forum, Lapid said "decisions like the one announced yesterday, on the nationalization of (the area) for building, raises the question 'what good does it do at this time?' This is underhanded opportunism that was not put to the Cabinet and just harms Israel."
