Zionist regime authorities have approved plans for the construction of hundreds of new illegal settler units in al-Quds, as the Tel Aviv presses ahead with its land expropriation policies in the occupied territories.
The so-called District Planning and Building Committee in al-Quds agreed to building 640 new illegal housing units at Ramat Shlomo settlement near the Palestinian neighborhood of Beit Hanina.
The Palestinian Foreign Ministry slammed the decision, saying the move “encourages Israel’s extreme right, which plans to swallow the West Bank and hinder any international effort to achieve peace based on the two-state solution.”
The ministry said the move proves that the administration of US President Donald Trump is biased in favor of the settlement activities.
The construction of the new housing units comes in grave contravention of international law and a United Nations Security Council resolution against the Tel Aviv regime’s land grab policies in the occupied Palestinian territories.
