The Israel land authority, on Wednesday, released tenders for the construction of 323 housing units in occupied Jerusalem.

According to the new plan, 130 housing units will be built in the Har Homa settlement on  Abu Gneim Mount, east of Bethlehem, 89 others in Gilo settlement, to the south of Jerusalem, 68 in Pisgat Ze’ev and Neve Ya’akov settlements, north of Jerusalem.

Israeli public radio said, according to the PNN, that the release of these tenders are part of a government plan to provide affordable housing units for Jewish families.

The radio noted that these tenders had been published about two years ago, but the marketing plan failed, at the time.

Similar projects for the building of hundreds of housing units in Jerusalem were announced by the Israeli government in recent weeks.
