Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday responded to international criticism of a plan to build 797 homes in Gilo, saying that Israel will continue construction in Jerusalem in the same way that the international community builds in their own individual capitals.
"We place no limits on construction in our capital city," Netanyahu said. "Just as they build in London, Paris, Washington and Moscow, we will continue to build in Jerusalem."
