Israeli officials on Thursday agreed to build 560 new housing units in the West Bank.

Iran PressMiddle East: These new housing units are to be built east of Bethlehem in the West Bank.

The Israeli regime always continues to build Zionist settlements regardless of the will of the international community and has the support of the United States in this regard.

All of these cities are illegally established under international law.

In a resolution (Resolution 2334), the UN Security Council on 23 December 2016 called on the Zionist regime to immediately and completely suspend all its settlement-building activities in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

By establishing new settlements, the Israeli regime seeks to change the geographical structure of the Palestinian territories and give them Zionist faces in order to consolidate its hegemony in the Palestinian territories. 219
