Israel Approves Over 2,000 New Settler Homes After Deals With UAE, Bahrain

On Wednesday, Israel approved the construction of 2,166 new settler homes in the occupied West Bank, putting to bed rumors that the normalization agreements with the UAE and Bahrain included a freeze on settlements.

The new homes are the first to be approved after an eight-month pause on settlement construction. Another 2,000 homes are expected to be approved for construction on Thursday.

Since President Trump unveiled his “Vision for Peace” in January, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been hoping to annex portions of the West Bank allocated to Israel in the plan. The plan gives Israel about 30 percent of the West Bank, including areas already controlled by Jewish settlers and parts of the Jordan Valley.
