(Jerusalem Post / Worthy News)-- Israel this week advanced plans for 1,083 settler homes in the West Bank as part of its response to the newly formed Palestinian government that is jointly sponsored by Fatah and Hamas.
The move is the second approval of settlement activity in the last eight days, and follows the Construction and Housing Ministry’s publication last week of tenders for 1,500 homes over the pre- 1967 lines in West Bank settlements and east Jerusalem.
Israel began announcing the building plans after the new Palestinian government was formally sworn in earlier this month. It also upheld its decision to suspend peace talks as long as Hamas, a terrorist organization, is connected to the PA government. -- Source
