OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Israel’s deputy premier Moshe Ya’alon has said that construction in three West Bank settlements would witness a boom in the few coming days.

Hebrew website Walla quoted Ya’alon as saying on Wednesday that the Israeli government was discussing granting new construction permits in Ma’aleh Adumim, Ariel, and Efrat settlements in the north and south of the West Bank.

He added when the decision is taken “You will witness a huge construction boom other than the one currently ongoing”.

Ya’alon, who is also the minister of strategic affairs, claimed that his government did not sanction new settlements but only expand those already established to honor an agreement to this effect with former American president George Bush.
