It is expected that Israeli Civil Administration will approve, within days, the construction of thousands of settlement units in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.

Hebrew newspaper Haaretz said, Sunday morning, that “the so-called Supreme Building Council of the Civil Administration will approve, this week, the construction of two thousand settlement units in isolated blocs and settlements.”

It stated that the ratification comes in implementation of statements made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a few days ago, in which he said that he “will soon seek to ratify the construction of 3 thousand settlement units.”

Netanyahu also stated that he would soon announce the annexation of the Jordan Valley and seek American support for the annexation of the rest of the West Bank settlements, PNN reports.
