Israel approved the construction of 84 buildings in West Bank settlements.

The approvals of buildings whose foundations have not yet been laid came on Wednesday, despite last week’s 10-month freeze on new building in the settlements.

The approvals came after Defense Minister Ehud Barak invited the mayors of West Bank communities to a meeting in Tel Aviv to discuss the day’s clashes between settler residents and Civil Administration building inspectors.

Only two mayors attended the meeting Wednesday evening.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to meet with settler leaders on Thursday.
