Ma’aleh Adumim mayor hopeful E1 construction to go ahead

Ma’aleh Adumim Mayor Benny Kashriel was hopeful Saturday night that after 18 years the Israeli government might be finally ready to authorize construction in an area of his West Bank city, known as E1.
On Friday, a senior diplomatic source told reporters that Israel was prepared to advance plans to build in E1.
The source added that authorization would be given for 3,000 new units in east Jerusalem and the West Bank. But no details were given as to where those units would be built.
