20130826-123243.jpgIsrael has announced that it will  build 1500 new homes in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Israel’s housing minister Uri Areil  made the announcement this week.

 

The planned expansion is in response to the new unity government that was established in the Palestinian controlled areas of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Mr Ariel said “When Israel is spat upon, it has to do something about it,” in response to the newly formed government and the break down of the peace negotiations.

 

Justice minister for Israel, Tzipi Livni, has said that the new constructions are a political mistake while chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat accused Israel of planning a “major escalation” in response to the new unity government with the construction of the new settlements.
