There has been a partial agreement between Israel and the US on settlement activity, Channel 2 reported Thursday.
According to the reported deal, construction in east Jerusalem will continue, as will the building of 2,500 West Bank housing units already underway.
The building of community centers in settlements will also be allowed, according to Channel 2.
Apart from the above, there will be a nine-month settlement freeze, according to the report.
In exchange, Israel will reportedly get commercial representation in Gulf states.
However, the TV channel claimed that there was still no agreement on what will happen regarding settlement construction after the nine-month freeze, or on Israel being allowed to use Arab states' airspace.
