    Haaretz expected that the committee will approve the construction of the proposed 540 settlement units for the area between the settlements of Har Homa and nearby Givat Hamatos in occupied Jerusalem.

    The newspaper expected that the settlement units to be built in the settlement of Givat Hamatos will accommodate more than 2,000 settlers.
