Israel announces plans for 3,000 more ho

Israel announces plans for 3,000 more housing units in West Bank 30 Nov 2012 Following a landmark United Nations vote upgrading the status of the Palestinian territories to become a “nonmember observer state” in the international body, Israel said Friday it would construct an additional 3,000 units of Jewish housing in the West Bank. The government is also moving forward with preliminary planning for a controversial development on the outskirts of Jerusalem that U.S. officials have opposed for decades, according to a government official… The hillside development, known as E-1, would connect the West Bank settlement of Maale Adumim with East Jerusalem, cutting off access between the Palestinian cities of Ramallah and Bethlehem. http://www.latimes.com/news/world/worldnow/la-fg-wn-israel-housing-west-bank-20121130,0,2330512.story
