Israeli plan to build 800 housing units in West Bank draws condemnation from Palestine

The Israeli plan to build 800 new housing units in the settlements in the West Bank has drawn strong condemnation from Palestine, with the Palestinian presidency spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh saying that “the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to build 800 new units in the illegal settlements is completely condemned”.

The development came on January 11 when Netanyahu said that a panel from the Defence Ministry will approve plans for 800 new settler homes before Joe Biden is sworn in as the new President of the United States, a move which drew strong criticism and condemnation from Palestine.

Abu Rudeineh further said, “Netanyahu’s frantic attempts to seize more land of the state of Palestine wouldn’t create any legitimacy, and the Palestinian people will not allow him to use his election campaign to steal more Palestinian land.”
