Palestine condemns Israel's plan to build over 3,000 settlement units

Gaza, Feb 24 (UNI) Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh on Friday condemned Israel's plans to build over 3,000 new settlement units in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
Israeli public radio reported that Israel plans to approve the construction of approximately 2,350 housing units in the Ma'ale Adumim settlement east of Jerusalem, around 300 units in the Kedar settlement southeast of the city, and 700 units in the Efrat settlement near Bethlehem in the West Bank.
The Palestinian prime minister said in a statement that the settlement-building plan is a "blatant challenge to the international community and an undermining of the prospects for establishing an independent Palestinian state."
