CAIRO - Egypt on Wednesday condemned an Israeli decision to construct 1,100 housing units in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo, which is located over the 1967 Green Line.

"This step reflects an Israeli choice to continue in its provocative policies and to challenge everyone in the international community that sees settlement construction as illegitimate," Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr said in a statement.
