|Subject: Print Email Israeli plan to resume settlement building on Monday Sat Sep 25, 2010 3:59 am|| |
Jewish settlers in the West Bank are planning to resume settlement building on Monday after the so called ten-month "freeze" on settlement activity comes to an end, according to a Haretz report on Friday.
It is estimated that there are building licences for 2000 to 2200 settlement units in various West Bank settlements, the building of which can start straight away.
There are 120 settlements dotted all over the West Bank, most of which will witness new building activities after the so called freeze.
The paper also said that contractors will start working on Monday morning pointing out that some of the settlement structures are light and cost little and can be lived in for years.
The paper said that the settlers plan to start building before the Prime Minister decides whether or not to extend the freeze.
