Although the coalition promised to maintain the status quo on issues related to the occupation, not only does it continue the strategies of former far-right Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a year later, but goes further, the organization criticized.
During that period, the Executive announced plans to build 7,292 homes in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, compared to an annual average of 5,784 at the time of Netanyahu from 2012 to 2020.
Under Bennett’s mandate, 1,488 housing units began to be built, 62 percent more than the average of the years in Netanyahu’s power.
Since June 2021, the Israeli authorities have promoted a series of strategically lethal plans that harm the development and territorial continuity of the future Palestinian state, Peace Now said.
The institution cited among them the new settlement of Atarot, located in the old Qalandia airport, the so-called E1 Corridor and the expansion of the National Park around the Old City of Jerusalem.
The E1 project is an area of about 12 square kilometers located between East Jerusalem, an area occupied by Israel since 1967, and the Jewish settlement of Ma’ale Adumim.
