ISRAEL - PALESTINE - Israel approves 1,500 more housing units in east Jerusalem [AN]


The new homes are to be built in the Ramat Shlomo settlement. The decision comes just days after the release of 26 Palestinian prisoners. For Israeli officials, the new units are part of a deal with the United States and the Palestinians. The latter deny any such agreement.
