Israel to construct 20 new houses in Jordan Valley settlement

July 24, 2008 9:24 A.M. (Updated: July 24, 2008 9:24 A.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - The Israeli Ministry of Defence and civil administration approved the building of 20 new houses in the settlement of Maskiot in the north of the Jordan valley on Wednesday.

This decision is still contingent on the approval of Israeli Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert.

Only one year ago Israel scrapped a plan to build 180 new houses at the settlement due to demands made by the US administration. In recent visits to the area both French President Nicolas Sarkozy and British Premier Gordon Brown, have called for an immediate freezing of all settlement expansion in the West Bank.
