The Israeli Ministry of Construction and Housing announced on Thursday morning its intent to build a new settlement outpost on Palestinian land in the northern Jordan Valley.
The plan includes the construction of 100 settlement units in Yarosh settlement outpost, where dozens of Israeli fanatics have set up roots.
The bid will be passed on to the Israeli government for final approval.
The Israeli radio quoted the minister of construction as stating that Yarosh is an important strategic site for Israel.
On December 23, 2016, the UN Security Council passed a resolution declaring Israeli settlements illegitimate and a threat to the two-state solution.
The northern Jordan Valley and Dead Sea make up around 30% of the overall West Bank area.
