Israel approves settler building in E. Jerusalem – NGO
An Israeli committee Wednesday granted approval for a four-story building for settlers in the heart of a Palestinian neighborhood of east Jerusalem, an NGO said, ahead of a speech by US Secretary of State John Kerry.
While a Jerusalem planning committee postponed requests for building permits for nearly 500 homes in east Jerusalem, it went ahead with approval for the building in the Palestinian neighborhood of Silwan, according to the Ir Amim NGO, which monitors settlement activity.
