Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Israeli War Minister Benny Gantz has approved the construction of some 5,000 new settlement units in the West Bank, according to Israeli media.
The decision, which goes against international law, comes nearly half a year after a former decision to suspend settlement construction in the West Bank. Gantz plans to hold a meeting for the higher planning council to approve his plan, reported the channel 13.
Gantz would hold the meeting next week after he also informed Netanyahu of holding it.
Gantz is trying to be more accessible to extremist settlers in illegal settlements following the general disappointment of Netanyahu’s decision to suspend construction.
