    According to report, the proposed 540 housing units are to be built in the Palestinian neighbourhoods of Beit Safafa and Sharafat, and create territorial continuity between the two major settlements of Har Homa and Givat Hamatos south of occupied East Jerusalem.

    The Palestinian Authority condemned the Israeli decision, with Presidential Spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh saying in a statement that this decision is “condemned and rejected.”
