As part of the Zionist entity’s continuous policy of expanding settlements, new Zionist Prime Minister Naftali Bennett has approved the construction of more than 3,400 settler units in the occupied West Bank.
Bennett gave the green light to the project on Wednesday, which involves the construction of 3,412 apartment units in an unbuilt area of the West Bank settlement of Ma’aleh Adumim, known as E1.
The construction plan has been widely criticized by Palestinian authorities as it cuts land access between Palestinian-inhabited territories in the West Bank and renders any future unified Palestinian state unviable.
Former “Israeli” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had tried to advance the E1 project but it was halted under pressure from the international community, the Palestinian Authority [PA] and rights groups.
The Palestinian Foreign Ministry condemned the move and said the occupying regime plans to “Judaize and Israelize” Al-Quds and the area C, and to evict the original residents and seize the Palestinian land for the expansion.
