Israeli settlers rebuild the destroyed illegal West Bank outpost of Alon Shvut on December 16, 2009. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last month announced a 10-month construction freeze in Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank in the hope it would help kick-start peace talks suspended nearly a year ago. Israel and the Palestinians could clinch a peace deal within six months if the Jewish state halted all settlement growth, Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas said in an interview.
