Report: Israel Won't Build New Homes, After All

Israel is rolling back its decision from last week to build 1,800 new homes in Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem, after European countries applied pressure to the government, according to reports Thursday. The report in Ha'aretz said that five European countries – Britain, France, Germany, Spain, and Italy – have been applying various forms of pressure in recent days, and as a result Israel has decided to postpone moving forward with the projects.

The Housing Ministry and the Israel Lands Administration on Wednesday issued tenders for 1,500 new homes in Judea and Samaria, and in Jerusalem.
