Haaretz probe: IDF base to be built in East Jerusalem
The Jerusalem municipality plans to construct an Israel Defense Forces army base that will house military colleges on Mount Scopus in Jerusalem, reportedly beyond the pre-1967 war green line.

Both the municipality as well as the Ministry of Defense dispute this claim, stating that the base will be built within the green line, however, Haaretz has revealed otherwise and according to the plans created by the architectural firm hired by the municipality, the base will encroach upon disputed territory.

I don't know about the boundaries, but it seems that the whole world was against it according to my information except the US. I think the US has used its veto power at the UN; correct me if I am wrong.
