Israeli occupation authorities yesterday approved the construction of more than 1,000 new housing units in the illegal settlements across the occupied West Bank.

According to Israel’s Walla news, the Israeli settlement ratification includes the establishment of a new settlement named Amihai, replacing the Amona outpost which was evacuated months ago.

Walla added that the decision came in response to direct orders made by the Israeli political leaders. A total of 2,600 housing units in the illegal settlements of the West Bank are also set to be approved by the occupation this week.
