PA denounce decision to build 1,500 new units in east J'lem

The Palestinian Authority leadership Monday strongly denounced the Israeli government's decision to build 1,500 housing units in east Jerusalem.
The PA is planning to file a complaint against Israel with the UN Security Council over the new project.
Nabil Abu Rudaineh, spokesman for the PA president’s office, said the decision was a “blatant challenge” to the international community and a “disregard for the feelings of the Palestinian people and Arab nation.”
Abu Rudaineh said that the decision would further isolate Israel “after the whole world rejected occupation and recognized the Palestinian state in the 1967 borders.”
