Occupied Palestine The Israeli cabinet has approved construction of new settler units near the besieged Gaza Strip, defying international outcry over the Tel Aviv regime’s Palestinian land expropriation policies.
Turkey’s official Anadolu news agency, citing a report published by the Israeli Hebrew-language Channel 12 television network, reported that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave the green light for the project on Sunday.
Israeli daily newspaper Yediot Ahronoth reported that the new settlement will house around 500 families, and will be named as “Hanun”.
The Israeli regime will reportedly allocate one million NIS ($296,000) for the development of the infrastructure in the new settlement.
Palestinian authorities have not commented on the report yet.
