Israel this year published the largest number of housing tenders — 3,046 — in
the last decade over the pre-1967 lines, according to report issued by Peace Now
over the weekend.
It calculated the number of housing tenders issued in
east Jerusalem and the West Bank to place in perspective Israel’s announcement
that it would publish an additional 3,000 such tenders, a move which it said,
could bring the number of pending new units over the pre-1967 lines to 6,046
The last time a large number of new homes over the pre-1967
lines were announced was in 2003 with the publication of 2,512 tenders,
according to Peace Now.
