Al-Quds, 19 Dzulhijjah 1437/22 September 2016 (MINA) – An expert in Israeli settlement affairs warned of an Israeli long-term plan to construct over 56,000 illegal settlement units by 2030.

A head of the Mapping Department at the Arab Studies Society, Khalil Al-Tafakji, said the Israeli occupation government, headed by Benjamin Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman, has been waging a Judaization war on Occupied Jerusalem, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) reported.
