Netanyahu: If re-elected, I won’t evacuate any West Bank settlements
Prime Minister Netanyahu said in an interview that if he is re-elected on March 17, he will not evacuate any settlements during his term. “I don’t see such a move as being practical at this point. Since I’m in charge it won’t happen,” he said.
