They lived in the Middle East – Israeli authorities in Jerusalem have approved a plan to build an illegal site in Khirbet Tabalya, Palestine.
On Wednesday, a Israeli-led Israeli-led local Israeli committee approved plans to build “government houses and roads” in Jewish “Giv’at Hamatos” camps, according to Israel. TV. It came a day after Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid met with US Vice President Kamala Harris in Washington, DC.
According to Jerusalem cartographer Khalil Toufakji, the area where the new facilities will be built in the 1990’s for the Ethiopian population, also includes travelers which was placed there to be in the house at that time.
“This is new. [Israel] is converting confiscated land, about 900 dams with these trips, into tall buildings, ”Toufakji told Al Jazeera.
He explained that some of the sites belonged to the German Lutheran Church and that some areas were secret Palestinian property, including refugees, and he also mentioned the initial sale of the church to a Jewish community north of Nazareth – “Bethlehem of Galilee” – and Sarona, near Tel Aviv.
Plans since 2012 to build units on the site have already met with strong opposition from Israeli allies in Germany and the US, which has led to government blocking the establishment.
But in February 2020, officials announced that 6,500 houses were being built, removing plans for the area including 3,400 houses and 1,100 hotel rooms. In November, he paid a fine to build 1,257 units on the site.

He further added that the expansion of the facility would mean “the eradication of all Palestinian bridges in Beit Safafa, complete isolation”.
