Israel to build 500 new settlement units in Ramay Shlomo, Jerusalem

PNN/ Jerusalem/

The Israeli Planning and building committee on Wednesday will discuss a plan to build 500 new settlement units in Ramat Shlomo settlement northwest of Jerusalem.

The illegal settlement is built on privately owned Palestinian land, and the plan includes the construction of 500 homes in an area of 76 dunums located between Ramat Shlomo settlement and Shufat neighborhood, according to the sources.

The Israeli municipality in occupied Jerusalem said that it will confiscate private Palestinian lands for the implementation of the settlement project.

The Israeli occupation authorities have earlier declared intention to build more than 30,000 settlement outposts in occupied Jerusalem after Donald Trump’s election as U.S. president.

The plan had been approved two years ago; however, it was suspended due to U.S. pressure on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
