Gaza29May4OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-The National Office for Defending Land and Resisting Settlement on Saturday said that the Israeli government is planning to double the number of Jewish settlers in the Jordan Valley area.

The Office explained in its weekly report that the Israeli government plans to launch a marketing campaign aimed at encouraging settlers to move to the Jordan Valley, adding that it also has vowed to transfer funds to the settlement councils that host the newcomers. Preference will be given to the settlements that set fewer conditions to host settlers.

Hebrew media sources have unveiled a plan presented by the Israeli Housing Minister, Yoav Galant, to strengthen the Jewish presence in the Jordan Valley which constitutes one-quarter of the West Bank.

This plan comes in conjunction with Israeli preparations to organize large celebrations to mark the anniversary of the Israeli occupation of the Jordan Valley with the participation of senior Israeli officials including Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
