According to the data, plans for 3,690 housing units in east Jerusalem were approved for validation and plans for another 2,660 housing units were deposited for objections. In addition, plans for another 2,660 east Jerusalem homes were released for public consultation in 2011, while construction began on 55 units located inside Palestinian neighborhoods, the report said.
"(Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu has broken his own government's construction record and has significantly accelerated construction in the territories," "What was illegal yesterday has now become legal under the (Netanyahu) government," Peace Now Director Yariv Oppenheimer told reporters Tuesday.
"At this rate the two-state solution will be in jeopardy. What was once considered an illegal outpost yesterday has become a legal settlement under the Netanyahu government. For every (Jewish) home that was evacuated, dozens of other outpost structures were legalized," he said.
Yesha Council Chairman Danny Dayan said he was pleased that Peace Now was "using the funds it received from European states to document the most important Zionist enterprise of our generation – the resumption of Jewish settlement in the heart of the Land of Israel."
