Israeli officials double down on settlement construction, rebuke US criticism

(Worthy News) – Two ultranationalist Israeli Cabinet ministers on Tuesday defiantly dismissed a growing chorus of global condemnation of new Israeli settlement construction in Judea and Samaria, instead promising to double down and legalize dozens of wildcat outposts.

Their comments came after the United States expressed opposition to the move and as four European countries added their criticism.
