Monday, The Israeli Occupation’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the construction of 800 new housing units in settlements built on the West Bank.

This decision came less than 10 days before US President-elect Joe Biden will take power in Washington, succeeding Donald Trump, whose administration saw the launch of a ‘peace plan’ that was strongly opposed by the Palestinian Authority.

In statements, Netanyahu’s office said, "The Prime Minister has instructed to to build about 800 housing units," adding, "among them are in the towns of Novi Nihamia and Tal Menashe where Esther Horgen lived."

Horgen, who held dual Israeli and French nationalities, was found murdered on the night of Dec. 21 near settlements west of Jenin in the Northern Palestine.
