NAZARETH, (PIC)– Israel’s deputy foreign minister Danny Ayalon has said that his government would not halt building in occupied Jerusalem.

He said in a press statement on Saturday that building in Jerusalem is out of the discussion about construction or settlement expansion in the West Bank.

Israel will continue building in Jerusalem and all its suburbs now and in future, he added.

The Israeli government recently endorsed the building of a new suburb south of occupied Jerusalem that would isolate the holy city from the West Bank and would include the construction of 2610 housing units.
