Settlement Council Funds Founding Infrastructure in Negohot Colony



The Hebrew newspaper, Haaretz, published on 19/08/2013 that the settlement council of the Zionist movement funded building infrastructure in "Negohot" colony, south of Hebron. The finance is estimated to be 400,000 NIS.
The newspaper added that, "By doing so, the council did not consider the instructions of the legal consulate of the Israeli government that ban funding any project unless it is legally licensed."
