Israel published tenders for 450 new homes in West Bank settlement

The Lands Authority on Friday morning published tenders for 450 new homes in West Bank settlements.

The non-governmental group Peace Now, which opposes any Jewish building over the pre-1967 lines, immediately attacked the move and charged that it was yet one more attempt by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to embarrass US President Barack Obama.

"It is a pre-election grab to establish facts on the ground made by the Netanyahu Government. After embarrassing the Obama administration with the invitation to the congress, Netanyahu adds another slam in the face of the Americans, and showing no respect to Israel’s closest ally,” the group said.
