Netanyahu lays foundation stone for 650 new settlement units in Ramallah


(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency) Ramallah, Aug. 8 (Petra) - Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, on Thursday laid the foundation stone for the construction of 650 new housing units in the settlement of Beit El, north of Ramallah.
The Israeli government decided to expand a neighborhoodin the settlement of "Beit El" adjacent to the city of Ramallah in the West Bank, which is expectedto include the construction of 650 new units, instead of 296 approved earlier.
The construction of the new settlement neighborhood allegedly comes as a "compensation" granted by the Israeli government to the settlers after the evacuation of the neighborhoods "Olbana" in 2012, and "Darinov" in 2015, which were "illegally" built.
The new neighborhood raises the population density of settlers in the region by 65 percent.
