The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) is planning to build 1608 new housing units in eastern Jerusalem, the Hebrew newspaper Haaretz said on Tuesday.

It added that the planning and construction committee of the Jewish controlled municipality of occupied Jerusalem would endorse a new neighborhood in Jabal Abu Ghunaim of 983 units in two weeks.

It said that 625 other housing units would be built in Pisgat Ze’ev in line with plans to expand existing colonialist neighborhoods in the holy city.

The paper said that the committee was pondering 2200 other units in Ramat Shlomo also in occupied Jerusalem.
