Israeli Occupation Approves New Settlement Plans in Jerusalem

B.M | DOP -

The what so-called Israel`s Local Planning and Building Committee in occupied Jerusalem approved new settlement plans, north of the occupied Jerusalem.

The new plans approved the building of hundreds of public and commercial buildings in addition to changing the infrastructure of different areas of Jerusalem, including Shufat, Beit Hanina, and Beit Sfafa.

Within the newly-revealed plan, the Israeli settlements of Kiryat Menachem, Nabi Yaqoub, Ramot, Ramat Shlomo, and Pisgat Zeev will be expanded with 189 new settlements outposts in 2023 and 2024.

Implementing the plan aims at isolating the Palestinian cities and villages and suffocating the Palestinians inside them. Thus, separating Jerusalem from the West Bank.

Palestinians living adjacent to the Israeli settlements in Jerusalem suffer difficult conditions as Israel controls their entry from and to their villages and communities.
