Israel approved plans for 4,427 West Bank homes on Thursday, ignoring a US request that it refrain from doing so. One outpost, Mitzpe Dani, was given final approval as a new neighborhood of the Ma’aleh Michmas settlement, at the meeting of the Higher Planning Council for Judea and Samaria when it convened for the first time this year. The council allowed for plans to be deposited that would transform the Mitzpe Lachish outpost into a new neighborhood of the Negohot settlement and would authorize conservation land in Gush Etzion in an area known as Oz Ve’gaon. A 180-room hotel is attached to that project.

Two industrial zones in the settlements of Ariel and Emmanuel were also pushed forward by the council, with plans deposited for the former and approved for the latter. The details of the meeting were published by the left-wing NGO Peace Now in advance of any formal notification by the Higher Planning Council.
