Israel approves 240 new settler units in Jerusalem

Jerusalem: The Israeli occupation authorities on Wednesday approved building permits for 240 settlement units in East Jerusalem.
Deputy Mayor of Jerusalem municipality Meir Turjeman said the city planning committee approved 90 units in the settlement of Gilo and another 150 in Ramat Shlomo, which is populated by a majority of radical Jews.
The approvals come as part of the latest in a series of moves to enhance Jewish presence in the contested Israeli-annexed Palestinian sector of the city.
On 23 December 2016, the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 2334, condemning Israel’s settlement activity, as a “flagrant violation” of international law and has “no legal validity”. It demands that Israel stop such activity and fulfill its obligations as an occupying power under the Fourth Geneva Convention.
