Israel advanced plans on Monday for over 700 Jewish homes over the Green Line in east Jerusalem, which were suspended briefly due to US President Joe Biden’s visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories earlier this month. The Interior Ministry’s District Planning Committee for Jerusalem accepted the deposit of a plan for 1,446 housing units that would be located between the Jewish Har Homa and Givat Hamatos neighborhoods. Preliminary approval to the project had been given in January, but this was a more formal one.

According to the left-wing group Peace Now, only half of the project is over the Green Line. But it has been argued that the project, known as the “Lower Aqueduct Plan,” is located in a strategic part of the city, next to the area that borders Bethlehem.
