RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Peace Now organization stated that the Israeli authorities are set to approve five thousand new housing units in West Bank in a record time, Yediot Ahronot Hebrew newspaper said.
The Israeli government talks about the two-state solution, while it practices the opposite on the ground,” said Yariv Oppenheimer, secretary general of the left-wing Peace Now movement.
The newspaper quoted the Settlements Council as saying that all Israeli left parties’ attempts to halt settlement construction have failed.
There were 120 thousand Jewish settlers in West Bank during Oslo Accords, while their number has now reached 370 thousand settlers, he pointed out.
