An Israeli newspaper has revealed that the Israeli government intends to build more than 30,000 housing units in east Jerusalem after US president-elect Donald Trump is sworn into office in January 2017.
According to the new Israeli plans, 15,000 housing units will be built in place of the Jerusalem-Qalandiya airport, and other thousands will be in the industrial zone of Qalandiya (Atarot) and hundreds in Ramot and Gilo settlements.
Meir Turgeman, deputy head of Israel’s municipal authority in Occupied Jerusalem, told that these settlement plans had been frozen over the last two years because of pressures by the international community and the outgoing US administration.
But now, he says, he is filing the construction plans for approval by the Israeli competent authorities.
