Israel ‘plans settlement growth’

BBC: “The Israeli government has plans to build at least 73,000 new homes for Jews in the occupied West Bank, the anti-settlement group Peace Now says. If the plans are implemented in full it would double the number of settlers in the West Bank outside east Jerusalem, according to the Peace Now website. Israeli officials said the plans referred to potential construction and only a small number had been approved. Continued settlement work is seen as a major barrier to Palestinian statehood.”
