Israel ‘Risking Peace Talks’ With West Bank Building

Sunday, March 7th, 2010 § Leave a comment


Israel has authorised the building of 112 new apartments in a Jewish settlement in the West Bank.

This comes as US Vice-President Joe Biden flies to the region, becoming the highest ranking US official to visit since Barack Obama took office.

On Sunday, Palestinian Authority leaders in the West Bank agreed to indirect talks with Israel.

Israel had promised a 10-month pause in settlement building in the West Bank, not including East Jerusalem.
