Israel Invites Bids for 77 East Jerusalem Settler Homes

Israeli authorities invited tenders on Monday for the construction of 77 homes in settlement neighborhoods of annexed East Jerusalem, settlement watchdog Peace Now said.

Peace Now spokeswoman Hagit Ofran told AFP it was the first such announcement in East Jerusalem since a March 17 general election win by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s rightwing Likud party.
