The Palestinian Authority (PA) is calling for more Palestinian construction in Judea and Samaria, and particularly in Area C which is under full Israeli control.

PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, visiting the new city of Rawabi in the Ramallah area, on Wednesday stressed the importance of urban development in all of Judea and Samaria.

"The construction on all parts of our land is our response to the Israeli violations and its displacement and expulsion plans,” said Hamdallah.

He stressed that “the construction is the realization of the Palestinians' natural right to live in freedom, dignity and hopefully like other nations, and proof that Area C is a natural extension of the land and the Palestinian state.”

Hamdallah expressed hope that similar projects to that of Rawabi will take place and attract foreign investors and capital.
