Gaza21Aug8TUBAS (PNIC):-The Israeli Occupation Authorities (IOA) late Wednesday approved the construction of 1500 new settlement units in the West Bank.

Israel’s Supreme Planning Council approved the construction of 1,000 new housing units in the Tana, Omrim, Carmel, Ali Zahav, Tzofim, Talmon, Neve Daniel and Kiryat Araba settlements.

The remaining 500 would be built throughout the occupied West Bank.

Earlier Wednesday, Peace Now movement revealed that Israel's War Minister Avigdor Lieberman last week announced his intention to submit plans for 2,500 settlement units in the West Bank.

Roughly 600,000 Israelis currently live on more than 100 Jewish-only settlements built throughout the West Bank and occupied Jerusalem since Israel occupied the territories in 1967.

International law views the West Bank and occupied Jerusalem as "occupied territories" and considers all Jewish settlement-building activity on the land as illegal.
