OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Field researcher of settlement activities Ahmed Sub-Laban said the Israeli committee of planning and building intends to build 130 housing units in Gilo settlement south of occupied Jerusalem and build more settlement outposts in Silwan district.

In a report, Sub-Laban stated that this Israeli committee discussed on Wednesday a plan to build these units in Gilo settlement on about six dunums of Palestinian lands annexed earlier from Shurfat village.

He added that the same committee also would discuss on Thursday two other plans to construct two large buildings in the Palestinian neighborhood of Wadi Hilweh in Silwan district, east of Jerusalem.

One building, to be built adjacent to the southern wall of old Jerusalem, will be used mainly for archeological and tourist activities and administrated by the Jewish settlement society Elad, according to the researcher’s report.

The second plan is build another large building for tourists and Ir David visitors called Beit Ham’ayan and will be also under the authority of Elad society, the report states.

The researcher noted that the Israeli committee of planning and building would approve on Thursday the three settlement plans and would publish them in Israeli newspapers for public objection before it initiates the construction.
