      PA Arab Media Castigates Israeli Construction Decision


      WAFA reports new Israeli settlement units announced with the departure of US Secretary of State John Kerry from the region were the focus of the three Palestinian Arabic dailies in their Tuesday issue.

      Al-Hayat al-Jadida said Israel announced the construction and sale of hundreds of settlement units with the PA responding it will not be blackmailed.

      Al-Quds said in its main front page story that an Israeli committee is speeding up plans to build 2322 new housing units in Ramat Shlomo settlement built on Shufat land in East Jerusalem.

      Al-Ayyam added Secretary Kerry left the region without achieving the breakthrough he hoped for.
