IOA to build dozens of illegal settlement units in Al-Khalil

[ 01/08/2012 – 10:20 AM ]

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Hebrew media reported that the Israeli war ministry has recently decided to build 84 new housing units in Kiryat Arba settlement in the occupied city of Al-Khalil.

The plan came as part of the privileges granted by Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu to the settlers following the Knesset’s rejection of the law legalizing random settlement outposts.

Hebrew newspapers described this government’s decision as odd since Kiryat Arba is a single and isolated settlement and is not within the large settlement blocs.

They pointed out that the settlement council in Kiryat Arba has recently launched plans and projects inside the settlement with the encouragement of the occupation government, as the minister of transportation has recently approved the construction of a new road in the settlement.

Meanwhile, clashes between Palestinian civilians and the Israeli occupation soldiers erupted in the Fawwar refugee camp, south of Al-Khalil, on Tuesday evening after the occupation forces arrested on Tuesday a Palestinian youth, 19, from the camp and transferred him to an unknown destination after raiding his home and searching it.
