Report: Israel approves plans for 119 settlement units
TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- The Israeli defense ministry has approved plans for 119 housing units in the settlement of Shilo, north of Jerusalem, the Israeli news site Ynet reported.
The permits were issued as part of the Israeli state's response to a high court petition against the settlement by Israeli rights group Peace Now eight months ago, the report said. The petition by the group claimed the construction was illegal and not part of an original plan for the area approved by the civil administration. http://www.maannews.net/eng/ViewDetails.aspx?ID=440115
