Israel to constitute committee to monitor Palestinian constructions built without permits

Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Israeli occupation authorities are working to constitute a special committee to monitor Palestinian constructions built without permits in the occupied West Bank.

According to i24 News, the committee will be working on gathering intelligence information for the Palestinian constructions built without permits in Area C of the West Bank.

Also, the project budget reaches 300 million shekel, and it will be deducted from the budget of the Israeli Ministry of Construction and Housing.

Area C makes up 60 percent of the occupied West Bank. Under the Oslo Accords, control of this area was supposed to be gradually handed over to the Palestinian Authority. Instead, the occupation state retains total control until today.

Today, some 150,000 Palestinians live in Area C, where they face severe restrictions on planning, building and access to natural resources. It is estimated that more than 300,000 Jewish-Israeli settlers also live in Area C, in clear violation of international law.
