Israel said to plan 500 new homes in East Jerusalem

The Jerusalem municipality submits plans to build 500 new homes in an East Jerusalem neighborhood, the Ir Amim NGO says, a first since the election of Donald Trump.

“This morning, the local planning and building committee made the decision to advance (plans)… for 500 units in Ramat Shlomo,” Ir Amim says, referring to an ultra-Orthodox Jewish neighborhood in the city’s north that lies across the Green Line.
