The Israeli government announced Tuesday plans for the construction of over 3,000 new settler units in the occupied West Bank.
The announcement was made late on Tuesday via a statement released by the Israeli Security Minister Avigdor Lieberman who signaled the go-ahead for the new plans.
Lieberman claimed that the new construction comes as part of a return to normal life in the occupied Palestinian territories, as well as conduct which provides real solutions to housing and living needs.
The approval comes as the evacuation of the illegal Amona outpost is looming.
Last week, the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, approved the construction of 2,500 illegal settler homes in the West Bank.
The move is the latest step in a construction binge which started directly after the inauguration of US President Donald Trump.
