Israel said set to okay 3,000 settlement homes, 1,300 Palestinian homes next week

Israel will next week advance the construction of more than 3,000 settlement homes and some 1,300 Palestinian homes in the West Bank’s Area C, according to a weekly schedule published by the Civil Administration’s planning committee and reported by Hebrew media.

It would be the first time settlement units are approved during the Biden administration and the current Israeli government. The plan was originally planned to be approved two months ago but was stalled by the Civil Administration, the Kan public broadcaster says.

The settlement homes will be in Revava, Kedumim, Elon Moreh, Karnei Shomron and communities in Gush Etzion and the Hebron Hills.
