Did Netanyahu Announce More Settlements?

No, he didn't.

He announced new satellites.

Satellites, not "settlements":

Netanyahu's Remarks at Today's Meeting between the Russian and Israeli Space Delegations

Following are Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's remarks today (Sunday), 27.3.11, at the meeting between the Israeli and Russian space agency delegations:

"Russian Ambassador Pyotr Stegny and members of the Russian delegation, Russian Federal Space Agency Head Anatoly Perminov and Science and Technology Minister Daniel Hershovitz, greetings.

I had excellent talks in Moscow with both President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. In my talks with the latter, we agreed to increase cooperation in space, which now finds practical expression in the signing of this agreement. What Minister Hershkovitz said is the truth. One year ago, I told him that I thought that Israel's most natural partner for cooperation is Russia, which has a major infrastructure for space operations. We have focused technology, including – I believe – six satellites in space. Soon we will have a dozen.

Please, be careful there.
