Israel approves new settlement units near Bethlehem

Aug. 20, 2018 1:23 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 22, 2018 10:43 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli authorities approved the construction of new settlement units in the illegal Israeli settlement of Efrat, in southern Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank.

Activist Hassan Breijieh said, on Monday, that Israeli settlers of Efrat rejected a plan, previously approved by the Israeli civil Administration's Higher Planning Council, to construct 40 new housing units in the settlement and demanded the construction of 106 units; their demand has been approved by the council.

Breijieh said that Palestinian landowners found the military order in their land.

He pointed out that settlement expansion will be at the expense of those landowners and farmers of the al-Khader and Artas villages in southern Bethlehem district.
