The Construction and Housing Ministry was set to publish tenders for nearly 6,000 new housing units Sunday, over 1,000 of which will be built beyond the other side of the Green Line.

Five hundred of the housing units included in the tender were in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Har Homa and 180 in the city's Givat Ze'ev neighborhood, both of which are situated beyond the pre-1967 lines. Another 348 units were offered in the Beitar Ilit, a settlement south of Jerusalem.

The units have already received approval for building in various planning committees.
