Defense Minister Naftali Bennett has approved the planning of a new Jewish neighborhood in the wholesale market complex in the West Bank city of Hebron.

The market buildings will be demolished as part of the construction of the new neighborhood. New stores will be built in their place, though the rights of the Palestinians to the properties on the ground floors will remain theirs.

KAN's Mark Weiss spoke with Yishai Fleisher, the spokesperson  for the Hebron Jewish community.
