A right-wing group has launched a campaign against illegal Palestinian and Bedouin construction in Area C of the West Bank, sharply criticizing Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman for not tackling the issue and portraying him as weak and incompetent.

The Otef Yerushalayim Forum claims there are currently 822 buildings built illegally by Palestinians and Bedouins with funds from the European Union. Despite repeated promises by the Israeli authorities, they say, and despite the issuing of demolition orders, these buildings are still standing.

“Lieberman is ignoring hundreds of Palestinian terror-buildings on Highway 1,” the group stated, “and by that he allows for a Palestinian terror state to be established.”
