(JNS.org) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at a Likud party faction meeting on Monday that there would be no evacuation of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria in a peace deal resulting from the current U.S.-brokered Israeli-Palestinian conflict negotiations.

“A settlement freeze during negotiations is not on the agenda,” Netanyahu said. “The talks are not about dismantling settlements and I have no intention of evacuating any settlements in Judea and Samaria.”
