Israel greenlights largest West Bank settlement construction in 25 years

EU warns Israel against settlement units in Occupied West Bank

Israel later withdrew from Gaza but lay a siege to it.

Israel has advanced plans for more than 3,000 new homes in West Bank settlements this week, despite United States President Donald Trump's call to hold back on such projects as he seeks ways to restart peace efforts between Israel and Palestine.

Hotovely's remarks came in response to UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, who accused the Israeli occupation of putting more burdens on the Palestinians and preventing them from developing.

Putin critic Alexei Navalny arrested again on his way to protest
He said the authorities had prevented him from renting sound equipment needed for a sanctioned rally in a separate location. He is recovering after an assailant threw green dye in his face in April, the latest in a series of physical attacks.

The Israeli media have been celebrating the "reunification". "The state must do its utmost to fight terror, [and] this law is critical to Israel's national security". These payments, amounting to more than NIS 1.1 billion ($350 million) per year, are funneled through the Palestinian Authority Martyrs' Fund which in 2014 was transferred to the PLO in an attempt to divert criticism.

Though this argument is constantly refuted for ignoring the power dynamics in the Palestine-Israel conflict, the oppressive nature of settlements and the detrimental financial and humanitarian effect settlements have on Palestinians in the West Bank. Just as Jewish neighborhoods of the city extend far beyond the area that was Jerusalem in ancient times, so do Palestinian neighborhoods. Forces also detained three freed prisoners from al-Jalazoon refugee camp for trying to enter Jerusalem without entry permits.

When Jews around the world pray facing Jerusalem, it is not the Shoafat refugee camp or the fix garages in Sheikh Jarrah that they are praying to and the idea that these areas have become "undividedly" Israeli is laughable.

Visceral's Star Wars Won't Be Showcased at E3 2017
It appears to be a sci-fi action-RPG, a sort of fresh start after EA elected to bench the Mass Effect series earlier this year. The Battlefield 1 In the Name of the Tsar expansion was given a September release date during the pre-E3 2017 EA Play event.

The United States, Israel's main ally, was the biggest donor to UNRWA past year, pledging $368 million.

While the prisoners are regarded in the Palestinian society as heroes who sacrificed their freedom for the liberation of their homeland, the Israeli society sees all of them as terrorists.
