Israel to build 1,028 new illegal settler units
Israel has unveiled tenders for the construction of 1,028 new illegal settlement units in East al-Quds (Jerusalem) and the occupied West Bank.
The new settlement buildings include 500 units in the Har Homa neighborhood of East al-Quds, 348 in the Beitar Ilit settlement near Bethlehem, and 180 in the Givat Ze’ev settlement in the West Bank.
Israeli officials said the settlement units were being marketed “as a follow-up to the Palestinian UN membership bid in September.”
Acting Palestinian Authority chief Mahmoud Abbas submitted an “application of the state of Palestine for admission to membership in the United Nations” to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on September 23.
The tenders are part of a 6,000-unit package that is scheduled to be constructed across Israel and the West Bank.
Israel has repeatedly been criticized by the international community for illegal settlement activities on the occupied Palestinian land.
On December 12, Israel approved the construction of 40 settlement units and a farm in two new settler communities in the West Bank.
In November, Israel decided to speed up the building process of the settlement units in response to the UNESCO vote.
Between October 2010 and July 2011, the construction of 2,598 new illegal housing units started in all areas in the West Bank.
