201947_345x230NABLUS (Ma’an) — Israeli authorities have begun construction work on a West Bank road which will link cities within Israel and illegal settlements and outposts, a Palestinian Authority official said Sunday.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma’an that Road 9 will link the coastal Israeli city of Hadera with illegal settlements in Jenin and the Jordan Valley.

The project, due to be completed in 2014, will confiscate thousands of dunams of Palestinian land in the northern West Bank, Daghlas said.

Road 9 will be around 183km when finished, the PA official said, calling on the United States to pressure Israel to halt the project.
