Islamic Jihad condemns settlement plan

Aug. 12, 2011 5:45 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 12, 2011 5:45 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – The Islamic Jihad movement called for resistance against Israel after it announced plans to build over 1,000 new housing units in occupied east Jerusalem, a spokesman said.

In a statement, the spokesman condemned the plan and said settlements are "the result of the peace process in the region, and the failed negotiations (with Israel) as a result of US policy."

He called on Arabs and Muslims to encourage resistance and defend Jerusalem.
