White House Wants 'Clarification' on Jewish Building

White House spokesman, Tommy Vietor, said Wednesday evening that the U.S. administration is waiting for “clarification” from Israel regarding a Jewish construction project of 20 new housing units in the Shimon Hatzadik neighborhood of Jerusalem.

"The United States urges the Israelis and Palestinians to avoid taking actions that may damage trust, while the Obama administration is trying to jump-start the peace process," added the spokesman.
