Israel to Build New Settlement in Occupied West Bank

Israel has announced it’s building an entirely new Jewish-only settlement in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. The move marks the first brand-new, official settlement in the West Bank built by the Israeli government in about two decades, although Israeli settlers have built unofficial settlements and the Israeli government has dramatically expanded already existing settlements. Last month, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced plans to begin construction on more than 5,000 housing units in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.
