Over the past six months, a staggering 13,000 settlement units have received approval — a rate that is twice as high as previous governments.

The newspaper highlighted this development as a major shift in settlement construction policy.

On Wednesday, Minister of Finance Bezalel Smotrich announced the construction of 1,000 settlement units in the Eili settlement, followed by another 4,500 units in different settlements just a few days ago.

In a related move, the Israeli government has also taken steps to streamline the approval procedures for future settlement construction. This decision, made earlier this week, aims to facilitate the construction of even more settlement units in the coming months.
