The Ministerial Committee on legislation will consider a bill allowing Israelis to return to Northern Samaria, where previously there were settlements, Homesh and Sa-Nur.
This law was presented by the head of a coalition government David Bitanem (Likud) and Knesset member Shuli Mualem («Bayt Yehudi»).
In the Knesset, the 19th convocation considered the bill on the complete denunciation of the decision on the disengagement plan. This bill was filed by a former Deputy Orit Struk.
The government broke up at the beginning of the consideration of the bill.
The current bill applies only to the area of Northern Samaria. In case of approval, the Israelis will be able to be in those places, where, until 2005, was a Jewish settlement and to move freely on the surrounding highway.
Currently it is unknown what the position of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu regarding this bill.

According to Yair, Nova have passed since the disengagement 12 years proves that Israel has not received any defense or political dividends for the retreat from the area. Nava added that he supports the demand of the return of settlers to the area of Homesh.
