New Israeli plan to build 71 housing units in east Jerusalem

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli municipal council in the holy city declared on Sunday its approval of the construction of 71 housing units in the illegal settlement of Har Homa on Abu Ghuneim Mount to the southeast of Jerusalem, the Hebrew news website Walla said on Monday.

According to Walla, this new decision was taken despite the widespread criticism Israel had received last month following its announcement of a plan to build 2,600 housing units in Giv’at Hamatos settlement in Beit Safafa town near Jerusalem.

It said that the Israeli municipal council had granted a construction company a license last August for the building of 71 housing units in Har Homa, but the plan was revealed on Sunday. (palinfo)
