Israel approves new homes in disputed West Bank

 Reuters 24 March 2019

Israel has approved building plans for 184 new homes in two Jewish settlements in the West Bank, land that Palestinians say belongs to them. Israel captured the disputed territory during the 1967 Middle East war but the annexation was not recognised internationally and Israeli settlements there are widely regarded as illegal. The fact that Israel continues to build on the territory is a major stumbling block in peace talks between Israel and Palestine. (209 Words) - By Maayan Lubell
