Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (R) attends a weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem on December 21, 2014The Israeli parliament’s finance committee on Sunday voted through $3.3 million (2.7 million euros) to build a tourist centre at a settlement in the occupied West Bank, a statement said. The money is for a project at the Barkan settlement in the north of the Palestinian territory, the Knesset statement said. It comes less than three months before a snap general election on March 17 backed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu but denounced by the opposition.
