OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) is to build around 8000 new housing units in occupied Jerusalem over the next five years, a Hebrew weekly magazine said.

Yerushalayim revealed that a plan to this effect was presented by the municipality to the finance committee in the Israeli parliament last week.

The revelation came one day after a group of Israeli lawmakers proposed naming Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the Jewish people.

Ahmed Sub Laban, an expert in settlement activity and a field researcher in Jerusalem, said in a statement on Friday that the new law if endorsed would boost the control of Israel on the holy city.

The Israeli government back in 1980 declared Jerusalem as the “eternal capital of Israel” in a move that was not recognized by the world community.
