'90 new housing units in Beit El get final approval'
By JPOST.COM STAFF
Permits to be issued for new units as part of compensation plan for the evacuation of the Ulpana outpost, Army Radio reports.
The building of 90 new housing units in the Beit El settlement is underway, Army Radio reported Monday. The Civil Administration on Judea and Samaria removed the final obstacle and issued a statement of validation for the construction, according to the report.
Within a few weeks, permits were set to be issued for the 90 new units,
as part of a compensation plan
for the evacuation of the Ulpana outpost agreed upon eight months ago.
The Yesha Council responded to the move, saying that they welcome any development in the West Bank.
Conversely, Peace Now Secretary-General Yariv Oppenheimer said that the development is likely to cast a shadow over US President Barack Obama's upcoming visit. He described it as a "mistaken and ill-timed decision."
