The Supreme Planning Council for Judea and Samaria recently legalized the… construction project in the West Bank. Part of the project is situated on private land, which belongs to Palestinian residents of the village of Bil’in.
The project calls for the construction of 42 buildings containing approximately 1,500 apartments. The buildings, already in various stages of construction, are in the neighborhood of Matityahu East, which is located in the large ultra-Orthodox settlement of Modi’in Illit.
Peace Now and Bil’in residents filed a petition against the construction a week ago at the High Court of Justice.
