Israel approves 31 settler units in West Bank city of al-Khalil



Israeli cabinet members approve the construction of 31 settler units in the occupied West Bank city of al-Khalil, also known as Hebron.

The construction permits were agreed in October last year and now the regime has issued the final go-ahead for the controversial move. The planned constructions would be the first such decision since 2002 in al-Khalil. The move is expected to escalate tensions in the city where anti-Israeli sentiments are ultra-high.

The Israeli regime has intensified its settlement constructions over the past two years with the new U-S administration taking the helm of the White House. Washington’s support has emboldened Tel Aviv to push ahead with the constructions which are deemed illegal by international law.
