Israeli Regime to Build 11,000 More Illegal Settlements Near Al-Quds

Israeli Regime to Build 11,000 More Illegal Settlements Near Al-Quds

Alwaght- Israeli regime seeks to build thousands of new illegal settlements near al-Quds (Jerusalem) ignoring international outcry against the Tel Aviv’s land expropriation and settlement expansion policies in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Israeli Hebrew-language daily newspaper Israel Hayom reported on Thursday that the so-called Israeli ministry of construction and housing is working on a project on the territory of the abandoned Qalandiya Airport in order to expand Atarot settlement, which lies north of Jerusalem al-Quds.

The report added that the plan includes the construction of 11,000 settler units on an area of nearly 600 dunams (148.2 acres), and stretches from the non-operational regional airport to Qalandiya checkpoint.

Israel Hayom said the land was confiscated in the early 1970s by the then ruling Israeli Labor Party. The project includes digging a tunnel under the northernmost Palestinian neighborhood of Kafr Aqab in East Jerusalem al-Quds to connect the new neighborhood to the eastern flank of the occupied holy city.

The daily newspaper went on to say that the settlement project had been drawn up several years ago, but was frozen in the wake of international political pressure against the Tel Aviv regime’s settlement construction activities in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Former Israeli minister of construction and housing, Yoav Galant, issued orders to resume work on the settlement project after US President Donald Trump took office on January 20, 2017.

More than 600,000 Israelis live in over 230 settlements built since the 1967 Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East Jerusalem al-Quds.

The UN Security Council has condemned Israel’s settlement activities in the occupied territories in several resolutions.

Less than a month before Trump took office, the United Nations Security Council in December 2016 adopted Resolution 2334, calling on Israel to “immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territories, including East Jerusalem” al-Quds.

Palestinians want the West Bank as part of a future independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem al-Quds as its capital.

The last round of Israeli-Palestinian talks collapsed in 2014. Among the major sticking points in those negotiations was Israel’s continued settlement expansion on Palestinian territories.
