’Israel’ Approves Plans for Thousands of New Settlements in the Occupied WB
Local Editor

Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu approved building plans for 3,736 new settler units in ‘Israeli' settlements in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday, as part of a new wave of construction spurred by the US President Donald Trump's administration.

The settler units will be built in numerous settlements, including in the occupied city of al-Khalil and other areas, according to an ‘Israeli' official who discussed the announcement on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.

Trump, however, said that settlements are "not a good thing for peace," but announcements of plans to build thousands of new units since his inauguration have been met with limited rebuke.

The settlements expanded during the presidency of Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, but his administration was more vocal in its opposition, calling them illegitimate and a major barrier to achieving so-called peace and a two-state solution.

In December, Obama broke with US custom by declining to veto a UN Security Council resolution labeling ‘Israeli' settlements as illegal.

Meanwhile, Netanyahu repeatedly vowed this year that he will not remove a single Jewish settlement from the West Bank.

About 400,000 ‘Israelis' live in roughly 150 settlements in the West Bank, and an additional 200,000 ‘Israelis' live in East of occupied al-Quds, the capital of Palestine.
