Outgoing Defense Minister Naftali Bennett  has given initial approval for an additional 7,000 homes in the  West Bank city of Efrat, in a move that would  expand  the settlement’s municipal lines  towards   the Palestinian city of Bethlehem. 

 Peace Now plans to petition the High Court of Justice against the  large construction project.

KAN's Mark Weiss asked  Efrat mayor Oded Revivi what the decision means for the city.
