DescriptionAn Israeli panel approved plans on Tuesday for the first new Jewish settlement in the West Bank in two decades, Israeli media reports said. The plan includes 100 new housing units in the new West Bank settlement of Amichai, intended for the evacuated settlers of Amona. According to the report, also envisage the construction of some 1,800 other settler homes in the West Bank, is likely to deliver a further serious blow to efforts to revive the moribund Israeli-Palestinian peace process. A spokeswoman for the military-run Civil Administration in the West Bank declined to comment on the reports. At a ceremony on Monday, Netanyahu said that Israel will keep its security control over all of the West Bank, even if a peace agreement with the Palestinians would be signed. Israel's settlement building in disputed territory is a major dispute between the Israelis and Palestinians. The settlements are illegal under international law because they are built on lands seized by Israel in the 1967 Mideast War, where the Palestinians wish to form their future state.
