"Israel" has approved building nearly 300 new homes in the settlement of Beit El near Ramallah, AFP quoted a Zionist spokesman as saying.

“Israel” Approves 296 New Settler Homes in West Bank 	"The Civil Administration has given the green light for 296 housing units at Beit El, but this is only the first stage of a process before actual construction can begin," he said, speaking on behalf of a unit within "Israel's" Defense Ministry which administers the West Bank.
 He explained that the construction plans were part of a compensatory measure for settlers who were evicted last year from Ulpana, an unauthorized outpost on the outskirts of Beit El which was evacuated following a High Court ruling.
The announcement came just two days after a report said Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had quietly ordered a freeze on tenders for new settler homes in a bid to give a chance to US-led efforts to revive moribund peace talks with the Palestinians.
