The Israeli occupation’s municipality in Jerusalem yesterday approved the construction of 800 new settlement units in the city’s occupied Palestinian territories, Israel’s Maariv reported.

The plan comprises the construction of 276 units in the illegal settlement of Pisgat Ze’ev, 120 in Neve Ya’akov, 200 in Ramot and 202 in Gilo.

The municipality’s approval means that the decision will be transferred to the regional committee for planning and construction in the Israeli interior ministry to get the necessary approval.

“The construction in Jerusalem is necessary and important,” Jerusalem Mayor, Nir Barkat, stressed, adding that “the work will strongly continue in order to get as many of the Jewish youths to live in Israel’s capital as possible.”

Israel has also approved the construction of 71 housing units in the Arab Al-Sawahra Palestinian neighbourhood, and 29 others in Sharafat, according to Maariv.

All Israeli settlements are illegal under international law as they are built on land stolen from the Palestinians. Such land is also supposedly earmarked for any future Palestinian state.

The US and the West have said settlement construction and expansion are hindering future plans for a viable Palestinian state.

    Israel charges UNESCO with ‘Fake history

    1. mondoweizz is hateful, please stop posting mondoweizz

  4. The following and last paragraph of Cook’s article applies perfectly in this case as well.

    This endless heaping of insult upon injury for Palestinians is possible only because the west has indulged Israel’s wallowing in victimhood so long. It is time to prick this bubble of self-delusion and remind Israel that it, not the Palestinians, is the oppressor.

    1. counterpunch described as left-wing by both supporters and detractors

  5. Demolition of homes of the defenseless and helpless is what Daesh has been doing in the areas that it occupied . It looks like they learnt this from Israel . What a shame and Israel claims it is civilized

    1. Are you civilized, Arzna? Your beloved (are you liberal fundamentalist?) Falsetinians in good breeding close to Israel and quickly easily building their homes in Judea and Samaria parasitizing mostly on Eurape, UN, Israel. What a shame you are learning from Falsetinians

      House demolition is primarily a military tactic which has been used in many conflicts for a variety of purposes.
      Boer civilians watching British soldiers burn down their house
      A destroyed house in Croatia marked with Serbian nationalist symbols and graffiti

    If you see monsters it’s because the light is brighter & they can’t hide anymore.
    They can’t survive their Uncovering (apokálypsis); this is their swan song.

    1. hag, you can’t hide anymore, your hate exposed

  12. The irony of the situation is mind bending. The persecuted, refugee Jews from Europe and Eastern Europe turned the land of their host to occupied territories (officially stated as so by the UN and the International Court of Justice).

    1. Go to Hell with your corrupted UN. 21% of Israeli population are friendly respected Orabians. Judea and Samaria occupaied by Fatahians Orabians, Gaza by Hamasian Orabians. Occupation by Jews hate is your brain state
