Ya'alon: Settlement construction will continue in spite of US pressure to stop

Settlement construction will continue in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem, Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Ya'alon said in a statement published by Israeli media outlets yesterday.

He claimed that the American administration had pressured Israel to halt the advancement of settlement plans but "this administration won't be in power forever", referring to Barack Obama's administration which Ya'alon has clashed with numerous times.

Israeli sources claimed that the American administration could not use its veto power in the UN Security Council vote on the Palestinian-Jordanian proposal to set a timeframe for the end of the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories occupied in 1967.
