The Israeli government has plans to build at least 73,000 new homes for Jews in the occupied West Bank, the anti-settlement group Peace Now says.
If the plans are implemented in full it would double the number of settlers in the West Bank outside east Jerusalem, according to the Peace Now
Israeli officials said the plans referred to potential construction and only a small number had been approved.
Continued settlement work is seen as a major barrier to Palestinian statehood.
Correspondents say the information indicates Israel's next coalition government, currently in the process of being formed by Likud leader Benjamin
Netanyahu, has a wide choice of projects for settlement expansion.
How can Israel expect People like Hamas and others to stop attacking
when every year Israel slowly expands into Palestine building more homes for settlers who they Ship in from Africa,Asia and other countries.
while destroying palestinian homes and making them homeless
the way the Israelis are going about things, Palestine if it ever becomes a country will be a bunch of settlements surrounded by concrete walls with
Machine gun turrents.
they are one of the biggest obsticles to peace in the area.
building more homes for Israelis on palestinian homes.
