#OUTRAGEOUS New Israeli bids for building 171 settlement units east of O. Jerusalem

 
OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- The Israeli ministry of housing issued tenders for the building of 171 settlement units in the southeastern part of occupied Jerusalem.
Specialist in settlement affairs Ahmed Sublaban said these units would be built on 11 dunums of land seized by the Israeli occupation authority from the Palestinian natives of Beit Sahour and Sur Baher towns.
Sublaban added that 130 settlement units would be part of the second stage of Har Homa settlement in Abu Ghuneim Mount and the other 41 units would be part of Pisgat Ze'ev settlement to the northeast of Jerusalem.
He stressed that these settlement projects are aimed at accelerating the Israeli plan to isolate the Palestinian city of Jerusalem from its geographical surrounding.
