The Palestinian Authority on Sunday responded to Israel's approval of hundreds of housing units in the West Bank, calling it "wrong and unacceptable."

Nabil Abu Rudaineh, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' spokesman, said that the atmosphere in which such a decision is made does not help, but only creates problems. Peace requires courageous decisions."

The government announcement of the new housing units in settlement blocs was made less than 24 hours after a terrorist stabbed to death five members of one family in the West Bank settlement of Itamar.
