Israel plans new construction of West Bank settlements
Catholic World News - June 05, 2014
Israel’s housing ministry has opened the way for new settlements in the Palestinian territories, the AsiaNews service reports.
The announcement comes just before the prayer meeting in Rome that will bring together Israel’s President Peres and Palestinian President Abbas. The construction of new settlements could be a major setback for Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.
