Israel unveils tenders for 1,121 new settler homes

AFP reports: Israel’s construction and housing ministry on Wednesday published tenders for 1,121 settler homes, most of them them in annexed east Jerusalem, with others in the West Bank and the Golan Heights.

Of that number, 872 are to be built in Har Homa, a contentious settlement neighbourhood in the southern part of Arab east Jerusalem, according to documents published on the ministry website.

Another 180 are to be built in Givat Zeev, just to the north of Jerusalem, while the remaining 69 are to be built in Katzrin in the occupied Golan Heights, the documents showed.

Contacted by AFP, a ministry spokesman dismissed the tenders as “nothing new,” but settlement activists said it was the first time the offers had been made public.

    I guess this is as good a way as any to turn those protesters of last summer into colonizers. That would be the only way to grab more Palestinian land, since the migration balance is hovering near zero.
