Israel sets sights on 2,000 additional illegal settlement homes in West Bank

Authorities in Israel have advanced plans to have nearly 2,200 settlement homes illegally constructed in the occupied West Bank. A committee within Israel’s Defense Ministry charged with handling such projects approved the plans on Tuesday and Wednesday. A total of 2,191 settlement homes were advanced this week, with 1,038 clearing their final hurdle in the approval process before construction can begin. The remaining homes are still being processed. Israeli settlements in the West Bank are considered illegal under international law. Members of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement seek to pressure international governments and companies into dropping business with entities that profit off of illegal Israeli settlements.
