IMEMC & Agencies: Israeli media sources have reported that despite efforts by the United States to resume the stalled peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, Tel Aviv decided to build 500 units in Brochin settlement, and 675 in Itamar.

The new units would be built on lands that belong to the villagers of Beit Forik and Awarta villages, in the northern West Bank district of Nablus.
Israeli Ynet News has reported that Israel prepared a plan to double the size of several settlements in the occupied West Bank.
It added that Israeli former Israel Defense Minister, Ehud Barak, has approved the plans before the general election. Back then, the plan included 538 units, and the rehabilitation of 137 units.
Furthermore, Israeli Walla News website has reported, Tuesday, that the Israeli government is also planning to construct 550 new units in Brochin settlement, in addition to building public facilities, a mall, sports areas, recreation center, streets and other infrastructure.
Walla news added that, back in April of 2012, the Israeli government officially approved the “rehabilitation plan” of the settlement that started as an illegal outpost, even by Israeli definition.
Israel is also planning the construction of 300 units in the Bet El settlement, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah.
Israeli Peace Now Movement stated that the Israeli government is breaking every rule, especially under the current conditions and changes in the region, and is acting on foiling any chances of resuming direct peace talks with the Palestinians.
