Israel has built 2,026 structures on territories grabbed from the Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, a right-wing Israeli organization says.
The units were built on privately-owned Palestinian land, Regavim said in its report on Sunday.
It added that the structures include 1,232 permanent homes and 794 mobile homes. Nearly 1,500 families live in these structures which are scattered on a large number of Israeli settlements.
More than half a million Israelis live in over 120 illegal settlements built since Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank, including East al-Quds (Jerusalem), in 1967.
Much of the international community regards the Israeli settlements as illegal because the territories were occupied by Israel in 1967, and they are hence subject to the Geneva Conventions, which forbid construction on occupied lands.
Tel Aviv has defied calls to end its settlement activities.
The effort of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to emasculate and revise the country’s war-renouncing constitution encountered a mass protest on Sunday, the country’s 68th Constitution Memorial Day, when he returned from the United States with the updated bilateral defense guidelines that will result in unconstitutional revision of security-related legislation.
Thousands of demonstrators from across the country took to the streets in Yokohama, a southern port city, protesting against the prime minister’s dangerous politics. They held banners that read “Firmly oppose destruction of the constitution,” “No Abe administration,” “Crush the ultra-right regime” and “Protect the pacifist constitution.” (more…)
