Israel lifts ban on building more homes in East Jerusalem

Jerusalem: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made an important announcement on Sunday that the Government immediately lifting the restrictions over building new homes on settlement building in East Jerusalem.

Early Sunday morning, the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu has took a decision of lifting the ban on building more homes in the eastern area of Jerusalem. This statement revealed to senior ministers immediately after the city’s municipal government approved permits for nearly 600 new homes in three settlements in the eastern edge of the city Jerusalem.

The restrictions were outlawed by the country’s Prime Minister two days after the inauguration of United States welcomes the new President Donald Trump. Although the restriction were lifted two days after but the decision were finalized just after few hours of inauguration of Donald Trump when the matter discussed with the inner members of the cabinet.

The restriction were imposed by 44th US President Barack Obama to spark a major diplomatic fight with Israel. As Barack Obama is outraged, Israel Prime Minister lifts the ban on building more home and also approve the permit to build 600 new homes in three settlements.

The statement quoted by Israel PM Benjamin, “There is no longer a need to coordinate construction in the Jewish neighborhoods in East Jerusalem. We can build where we want and as much as we want,” expressed more by saying, “My vision is to enact sovereignty over all the settlements.”

The security Cabinet has to face a little bit more delay until the Israeli Prime Minister not meet with US President Donald Trump.
