PA condemns approval of new housing units in Gilo

The Palestinian Authority condemned the Jerusalem Zoning Committee's decision to approve 1,100 housing units in the city's Gilo neighborhood.

A statement by the Palestinian Prime Minister's Office said: "The prime minister of Israel claims that he has no preconditions, but this decision creates preconditions on the ground. Netanyahu said there is no room for unilateral steps – there is no bigger unilateral step than ordering construction in Palestinian land." (Elior Levy)
