The plantings in the Negev were rejected, the minister in the previous government admonished: "Malice government" | Israel today


KKL-Junk did not approve the planting of trees in the Nahal Yatir area on state-owned land, even though they were set for next Sunday • During the days of the previous government, members of the current government harshly attacked the delay in planting • Former minister Yoaz Handel: "If there is fraud, this is what it looks like"

The state avoided planting trees that were planned for this coming Sunday: KKL-Junk did not approve planting operations in the Nahal Yatir area on state-owned land where there are many invasions and trespasses by Bedouin elements who build on the site and even dump waste there.

During the days of the previous government, the members of the current government strongly attacked the delay in planting and claimed that it was improper pressure from political parties within the government.

The Israel Land Authority states in the panic letter sent to the KKL administration that the area where the plantings are planned is important because in the future Route 6 will pass through it and it is critical that no private buildings be built there, and it is also a buffer zone for the nearby Nabatim base. Against this background, Rami expresses confusion about the KKL Since she has not yet approved a planting operation in the area that is already coordinated with the police.

The Israel Land Authority points out that plantings have already been done in the area in the past, and all without problems or special events, so it is not clear why there is a delay in approving the plantings this time.

This comment about 'special events' written in the letter forwarded to the KKL administration raises the thought that the plantings this time may have been postponed due to fear of disturbances by various parties, including the Bedouins who live in the area, as has indeed happened in the past with plantings done by the state.

Former minister Yoaz Handel who wrote that KKL-Junk is delaying planting in the south for fear of riots and that in this respect it is a "malicious government". The Regavim movement was also outraged by the decision and published that "there is no way we let violence win".

Malicious government.

Afraid to plant trees in Israel.

Mansur Abbas is not in the coalition, the floor is not crooked, and the people of the "full right" are stopping planting.


Because they never meant to.

On the other hand, KKL-Junk responded to the words and said that "Planting and settlement are among the leading values ​​of the organization.

The request from RMI only arrived last night and it needs to go through the professional factors as we do with every request or action we carry out.

We will continue to be key partners in building the country, in maintaining and developing the land."

The Minister of the Negev, the Galilee and National Resilience, Yitzhak Wasserlauf said in response: "I am working with all the relevant parties. The plantings in the Negev will not stop."

MK Almog Cohen from Otzma Yehudit said in response: If KKL-Junk does not quickly come to their senses from this decision, I will come every day of the next week to Nahal-Yitir to plant plants with groups of citizens."
