GAZA, (PIC)– Gaza Minister of Public Works and Housing Yousef al-Mansi condemned approved plans to erect 3,300 homes for Jewish settlers in Jerusalem as announced by Israeli occupation.

He emphatically stressed the need to address the plans ”designed to Judaize the holy city.”

“The occupation government continues at an accelerated pace in settlement activity in Jerusalem and the West Bank, with 5,000 new settlement units recently built,” Mansi said in a press release Monday.

The Gaza minister called for a complete stop to settlement activity saying it will distort the geographic and demographic situation in the Jerusalem and the West Bank.

The statement also calls for salvation the Aqsa Mosque from Israeli construction plans and supporting the Jerusalemites in order to counter those projects.

Mansi praised the people of Jerusalem for their steadfastness in the face of Israel’s schemes and conspiracies targeting the Aqsa Mosque and occupied West Bank.
