Israel’s cabinet voted unanimously on Sunday to legalize the Havat Gilad Jewish settlement, located in northern Samaria.

Havat Gilad, which was founded 15 years ago, never obtained official recognition as a legal community from Israel’s Interior Ministry, despite at least part of the community sitting on land legally purchased by private Israeli residents. Without being legalized, the community has been unable to receive government funding, or building permits.
