Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that he has decided to postpone the planned demolition of a West Bank hamlet to allow time for a negotiated solution with its residents, in a move that appeared aimed at staving off the fierce international condemnation such a demolition would likely entail.In response, Netanyahu clarified the hamlet would be razed, and his delay was not open-ended.Netanyahu's Cabinet decided Sunday to postpone the demolition by "a few weeks" to allow a negotiated settlement.The village is in the 60 percent of the West Bank known as Area C, which remains under exclusive Israeli control and is home to dozens of Israeli settlements.The Palestinians claim all the West Bank and say that Area C, home also to an estimated 150,000 to 200,000 Palestinians, is crucial to their economic development.
