The Israeli military have decided to build 90 new housing units in the illegal Israeli settlement of Beit El in the East of Ramallah. This comes just before a visit by the American president Barack Obama who purpose of the visit is to discuss the freezing of settlements. The army made the decision to build more units following their evacuation of the outpost Albona a year and a half ago.
A resident of a village near Beit Eil explained how conditions have become difficult and will gradually worsen as they are already harassed by the settlers.
The Israeli government has already pledged to the settlers to build 300 settlement units in the settlement of "Beit El" after Israeli Supreme Court decision to evacuate many of the houses of the settlers who built on Palestinian private land.
Israelis says that they are using the new housing units for the settlers that were previously evacuated. They are also trying to make distiction between what they call legal and non-legal settlements. But all the expansions are illegal under international law.
