Israel Confident of U.S. Support, Ignores U.N. Resolution.
Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday that he agrees with the Defense Minister on the construction of 2,500 new housing units in Judea and Samaria and that “we build and continue to build.”
Israel has approved 2,500 settler homes in the occupied West Bank, officials said Tuesday, marking a major settlement expansion following the election of US President Donald Trump.
The planned new homes approved by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman may be the largest number to have been given the green light since 2013, said settlement watchdog Peace Now.
