OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Israel’s new National Housing Committee approved in its first meeting on Tuesday plans to build 900 settlement units in Jewish settlements in occupied southern Jerusalem, Israeli Channel Ten has reported.

“The Northern Regional Planning and Building Commission has also approved plans for 35,000 housing units in the north, which have not yet been implemented because of various obstacles,” said the Israeli Ministry of Interior.

The NHC was established on the pretext of solving the current housing crisis in Israel and holds that it is necessary to build more settlement units in Jerusalem in the coming period.

In a monthly report on settlements, Palestinian resistance group Hamas said Israeli occupation authorities approved plans for construction of more than 3,000 settlement units, most of them in Jerusalem, in the period of 16 August to 15 September.

Israel “is plotting against the Palestinian identity, memory, history, geography, and culture,” the report concludes.

The document, released by Hamas’s media bureau, also remarks on home demolitions, excavations, and burning of crops as well as the recent outbreak of attacks by Jewish settlers against the native Palestinian population.
