Israeli regime has given the green light to the construction of 380 new illegal settler units in two areas of East al-Quds (Jerusalem)

“The municipal commission has given construction permits for 307
homes in Ramot and 73 in Har Homa,” Yosef Pepe Alalu, a city councilor,
said on Wednesday, referring to two areas in the city.

Local Israeli authorities are taking advantage of the attention that
is given to the March 2015 elections in order to expand construction
projects, he said, adding, “This kind of decision distances us from any
chance of reaching an agreement with the Palestinians.”

Despite widespread global condemnation of Israel’s land grab
policies, the Tel Aviv regime has approved a series of plans for new
settler units in East al-Quds in recent months.

The presence and continued expansion of Israeli settlements in
occupied Palestine have created a major obstacle in the way of the
efforts to establish peace in the Middle East.

More than half a million Israelis live in over 120 illegal
settlements built since Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian
territories of the West Bank and East al-Quds.
