Rights Group Says Israel Approves 4,427 New Settler Homes


JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel on Thursday approved the construction of more than 4,000 settler homes in the West Bank, an Israeli rights group said.

It’s the biggest advancement of settlement projects since the Biden administration took office.

Hagit Ofran, an expert on the settlements at the anti-settlement watchdog Peace Now, says a military planning body approved 4,427 housing units at a meeting that she attended.

Israeli officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
