OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, PALESTINOW.COM — Israel’s Planning and Building Committee has put forward a new plan to build 2,430 settlement units in the West Bank and Jerusalem.
According to Jerusalem Post, four settler outposts, some of which had been evacuated, will be re-constructed. The Israeli newspaper did not mention further details.
Jerusalem Post said that Israel’s Security Cabinet a few days ago decided to allow the Palestinians to build about 700 housing units in Area C, which is exclusively administered by Israel. In return, 6,000 new housing units will be built in Israeli settlements in the same area.
The Israeli government over the years has demolished hundreds of Palestinian homes and buildings in Area C under the pretext of being unlicensed.
