IOA accelerating settlement building south of Jerusalem

[ 09/07/2012 – 08:08 PM ]

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) is accelerating building of settlement units in HarHoma and Gilo settlements, Jamal Omer, a Jerusalemite expert, said on Monday.

He told the PIC that the IOA was planning to link those two settlements, the first to the south of occupied Jerusalem and the second to the north of Bethlehem.

Omer said that thousands of settlement units would be built between the two settlements in a bid to foster a new third settlement in that area and to foil any Palestinian attempt to expand southwards from Jerusalem.
