The Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, according to WAFA, ordered the construction of 300 new housing units in the illegal West Bank settlement of Dolev, built illegally on al-Janiya village land, to the west of Ramallah.

The decision was made in response to Friday’s explosion near the village of Ein Arik, west of Ramallah, that killed one Israeli settler and injured two others.

Reportedly, Netanyahu has directed the Defence Ministry to advance a plan for a new neighborhood in the illegal Dolev settlement.

Netanyahu was quoted as saying that “We will deepen our roots and strike at our enemies. We will continue to strengthen and develop the settlements.” – IMEMC
