Town in Jordan Valley approved for valid status

The Israeli government's done something positive just prior to the election, giving approval for authorizing Mevo'ot Yericho as a permanent district for Israeli citizenry:
The cabinet on Sunday approved the prime minister’s proposal to authorize the community of Mevo’ot Yericho in the Jordan Valley, during its meeting today in the area.

The decision will enable the community, which began as a farm at the end of the 1990’s, to become a permanent and independent town.

The vote took place after the attorney general removed his opposition to holding a vote on the issue.

Earlier Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Ministers Amir Ohana, Yariv Levin and Bezalel Smutrich spoke with Attorney General Dr. Avihai Mandelblit in an attempt to persuade him to change his opinion against authorizing the community of Mevo’ot Yericho.

Mandelblit had asked the prime minister whether it was crucial that a decision on the issue be made today, to which Netanyahu responded that the urgent nature of the matter stems from the expected release date of the Trump administration peace plan and the desire to ensure the status of the community before the release of the plan.

Following the conversation, Mandelblit removed his opposition, and the vote was held.

Speaking earlier at the cabinet meeting, Netanyahu had reiterated his pledge to soon apply Israeli sovereignty in the Jordan Valley and Dead Sea area.
He's done the right thing here, and this is good for Israel's future.
