‘ Fuelling The Fire in West Bank Israel Plan a Thousand New Homes’

#AceWorldNews  – ISRAEL (West Bank) – June 05 – Israel is planning to build more than 1,000 new settlement homes in the West Bank, Reuters said, citing local media reports.

The Housing Ministry announced new tenders for the homes in a number of Jewish settlements on land the Palestinians seek for a future state, according to Israel Radio.

The move follows the formation of a Palestinian unity government that includes Hamas Islamists.

Israeli officials were not available for immediate comment on the report.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas swore in the unity government on Monday.

The United States said it planned to work with the administration set up by the reconciliation deal, prompting Israel to express deep disappointment.
