Jerusalem Municipality expected to approve hundreds of residential units as rebuke to UN

Three days after the United Nation’s Security Council voted to adopt a resolution condemning Jewish construction over the 1949 Armistice Line, multiple reports stated that the Jerusalem Municipality will approve hundreds of housing units in contested areas on Wednesday.

Angered by what the council deemed an “illegal” and “flagrant violation” of international law, Jerusalem’s Local Committee for Building and Construction is prepared to approve the construction of 618 homes.

The units will purportedly include 262 in Ramat Shlomo, 216 in Ramot, and 142 in Pisgat Ze’ev.

Additionally, the municipality’s District Zoning Committee is reportedly meeting on Wednesday to discuss approving 5,600 more residential units in Gilo, Ramot and Givat Hamatos.

Although the municipality has yet to release a pending statement about the matter, as recently as last month, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat said he would never cease construction in the capital, despite ongoing international pressure.
