Peace Now: Israel OKs more construction in West Bank settlements

JERUSALEM – An Israeli anti-settlement group says the government has approved over a thousand new housing units in the West Bank.

 

Hagit Ofran of the Peace Now movement said on Thursday that 1,122 were approved this week.

 

Ofran says the government is "trying to prevent the possibility for peace and a two-state solution." She says it "adds more people Israel will need to evict in a peace agreement."
