Israel approves plans to build some 2,300 housing units in the West Bank

Israel has approved plans to build some 2,300 new housing units in the occupied West Bank, the latest in a series of plans approved since US President Donald Trump took office, the Israeli Peace Now movement said on Tuesday.

"The planning committee of the Israeli army ministry approved during its meeting in the past two days 2,304 housing units undergoing various stages of approval procedures," Peace Now said in its statement.

According to the movement, which closely monitors settlement construction, "the approval of settlement construction is part of a disastrous government policy aimed at preventing any possibility of peace and impeding the option of a two-state solution and annexation of part or all of the West Bank."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed ahead of April elections to annex settlements in the occupied West Bank, a move sought by Israel's far-right.

The annexation of West Bank settlements is seen as destroying the two-state solution that is at the center of international efforts to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
