Politics A- A A+

Israeli authorities have built almost 20,000 settlement housing units in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) during the past decade that Benjamin Netanyahu has been prime minister, Middle East Monitor reported.

The figure is part of the newly-released annual report by settlement watchdog Peace Now.

Peace Now also noted that “in the decade of Netanyahu’s rule, the various government ministries transferred more than NIS 10 billion ($2.8 billion) as surplus budgets to the settlements,” which does not include “the defence and security expenditures” or “some of the road construction expenses”.
