JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli government approved a project for the expansion of Route 60 connecting the occupied West Bank districts of Jerusalem and Hebron.

Head of the Anti Wall and Settlement Committee in Bethlehem, Hasan Breijieh, said that the Israeli Minister of Transportation ordered the expansion of Route 60 via four lanes, which would confiscate thousands of dunams of Palestinian lands of the al-Khader town, Beit Jala City and al-Maasara village in the central West Bank district of Bethlehem, and the Beit Ummar town in the southern West Bank district of Hebron.

Breijieh added that the project would widen the route up to 100 meters in width.
