Al Qassam website - An Israeli leftist organization has revealed that the Israeli occupation authority was planning to build two new settlement outposts in the West Bank within the few coming months.

“Peace Now” movement said in a statement on Wednesday that Jewish settlers had already started to install caravans and extend electricity and water lines to the outpost to the north west of Ramallah while another similar outpost was built near Qalqilia.

The head of settlements council Danny Dayan claimed that both outposts were only new suburbs to be added to the established settlements in both areas.

The Israeli civil administration said that it was aware of the plan to build new settlement outposts in the West Bank for the first time in seven years and would investigate it.

More than 340000 Jewish settlers live in settlements built on Palestinian land in the West Bank while more than 200000 others lives in ten Jewish suburbs built to the east of occupied Jerusalem.
