J'lem committee reportedly approves 1,200 units in Gilo

The Jerusalem Local Planning Committee on Monday night decided to proceed with the planned construction of 1,200 housing units in the Jerusalem suburb of Gilo located across the Green Line, Army Radio reported.
The decision comes amid widespread international criticism of plans to build as many as 6,500 additional homes across the Green Line in the wake of last month's unilateral declaration of Palestinian statehood at the UN.
