After being delayed for weeks, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered that tomorrow (Monday), the Regulation Law will be voted on for its second and third reading.

The controversial law, which aims to legalize the settlements in the West Bank but will not prevent the Amona evacuation and other cases where a final ruling has been given, will be brought up tomorrow morning in a special committee discussion. Later, it will be brought up for a second and third hearing. Over the past several months, the Israeli Attorney General rejected the bill.

Meanwhile, Ofra residents are expected to start a hunger strike today, across the Prime Minister’s office in Jerusalem. The residents are protesting the Supreme Court’s ruling to demolish 9 of their homes in the settlement.
