The Israeli Ministry of Housing sold 1,400 to settlers in East Jerusalem and the West Bank in 2010, a Palestinian researcher inside 1948-occupied Palestine said in a report on Saturday.

According to data gathered by Attorney Qais Nasser, a lecturer in planning, most of the units were sold in Modi’in (668), Har Homa (319), Ma’ale Adumim (101), Beitar Illit (126) and Givat Ze’ev (78).

The report says houses sold that year constitute 35 per cent of the total houses sold by the Housing Ministry.

Nasser warned that the ministry is working to build and market around 5,000 new settlement units in Jerusalem and the West Bank, as well as develop structural plans to build around 3,300 new homes in Har Homa, Homat Shamuel, Ramot and Ramat Shlomo in Jerusalem.
