"According to Israeli Daily Haaretz, Israel's Housing Ministry has authorized the construction of 350 settlement housing units in the West Bank and around the city of Jerusalem/ al Quds.

Spokesman for the Housing Ministry, Ariel Rosenberg revealed that the new construction was part of a wider plan to build another 7,000 homes.
According to Haaretz, the Housing Ministry “linked the new construction to a nationwide plan to lower housing prices, which have skyrocketed in recent years, and appease protesters demanding affordable living space.”
In response, the Palestinian Authority condemned the construction of new settlement units. Palestinian Presidential Spokesperson Nabil Abu Rdeineh, strongly condemned the new Israeli settlement construction decision inside the West Bank. Abu Rdeineh said that “this is another reason that calls on us to head to the UN and the Security Council to seek UN recognition of the state of Palestine. “
