Israel to build 77 new settlement units in East Jerusalem

The Israeli government has issued tenders for 77 new Jewish-only settlement units in occupied East Jerusalem, an Israeli NGO said Monday.

According to leftist Peace Now movement, which campaigns against Israeli settlement activities, 36 of the new tenders are for Neve Yaakov settlement and 41 for Pisgat Zeev.

The movement slammed the move as an "indicator" of the policies of the new government that is in the making under outgoing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whose Likud party won the country's parliamentary elections last month.

Earlier this year, the group said that Israeli settlement construction in occupied Palestinian territories by increased by 40 percent during 2014.
