Days of Palestine, Jerusalem –Israeli authorities approved on Wednesday the construction of 78 new settlement units in occupied Jerusalem.
Of the new settlement units, 50 would be built in the illegal Har Homa settlement, which is built on Jabal Abu-Ghneim, a private Palestinian property between Bethlehem and Jerusalem.

The other 28 settlement units will be built in the illegal Ramot settlement, which is built on private Palestinian land between Jerusalem and Ramallah.
The decision was okayed by all the members of a planning and construction committee of the Jerusalem municipality, aside from one left-wing Meretz member.
There are over 500,000 Israeli settlers living in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem in contravention of international law.
Such step, especially in the middle of the ongoing uprising in the holy city, adds more fuel on the fire of that uprising, which was ignited by the killing of a Palestinian boy, and ended with the killing of Israeli rabbis.
