Palestinians: Netanyahu harming chance for peace by approving East Jerusalem construction – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

Senior Palestinian Authority officials on Friday accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of attempting to foil the peace process, after the premier approved tenders for construction of nearly 240 new housing units east of the Green Line.

“The Netanyahu government is determined to thwart any chance of resuming direct negotiations,” said chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat, hours after media sources reported that Israel was moving ahead for the first planned construction of this kind in months.
