Israel approves largest West Bank settlements in 25 years

"There was no better government in terms of settlement construction", he said, according to Haaretz.

Stern's bill emulates the Taylor Force Act, a 2016 U.S. legislative bill sponsored by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham (South Carolina), which proposes to halt American economic aid to the PA until the latter changes its legislation regarding the transfer of funds to Palestinian security prisoners and family members, and families of terrorists who died committing attacks.

The letter addressed to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was written on behalf of the members of Truah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights, and delivered on Friday, the day 50 years ago that the Six Day War ended.

Counting plans and tenders, Peace Now said 7,721 units had been advanced this year, nearly triple the number for all of 2016, which amounted to 2,699. The plans are at various stages in the process and the units are located in a number of settlements across the West Bank.

The Ministerial Committee for Legislation advanced a bill on Sunday that would cut tax transfers to the Palestinian Authority (PA) over stipends paid by the Palestinian leadership to security prisoners and their families.

Ariana Grande critic Piers Morgan apologizes to singer
After all, the performance was being live-streamed across the world so will.i.am could have been addressing London. The pop singer visited young fans injured in the attack at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital on Friday.

Last week alone, Israel advanced plans for more than 3,000 settlement homes.

The senior official claimed that the worldwide organization has been lured to repeating the "Palestinian propaganda vocabulary" and claimed that Israel does not occupy the land of anyone.

While the majority of those are for pre-existing homes, some will be built in the first new official settlement in some 25 years, Peace Now said. They are also seen as a major obstacle to the so-called two-state solution - the creation of an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel. Last month, Trump visited Israel and the Palestinian territories, meeting both Netanyahu and Abbas as he seeks what he has called the "ultimate deal".

Almost 400,000 Jewish settlers are estimated to be living in the West Bank along with 2.8 million Palestinians.
