Israel to massively expand settlements after UAE normalization

Israel is moving ahead with thousands of new settlement units in the occupied West Bank.

This represents a dramatic expansion of Israel’s settler-colonial efforts: The vast majority of the housing units are planned in “isolated” settlements outside the large blocs already eyed for Israeli annexation under President Donald Trump’s so-called “Peace to Prosperity” plan.

About 350 units will be added to each of the Beit El settlement, north of the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, the Geva Binyamin settlement, northeast of occupied East Jerusalem, and the Nili settlement, in the central West Bank.

Almost 1,000 new housing units are set to be approved in the so-called Har Gilo settlement, sandwiched between Jerusalem and Bethlehem.

Israel is also advancing plans for almost 700 new housing units in Eli settlement in the central West Bank.
