ROME, July 11, 2017 (WAFA) – The Italian Foreign Ministry Tuesday expressed concern over Israel’s recent approval of a plan to build 944 housing units in Pisgat Ze’ev settlement in occupied East Jerusalem.

“The Foreign Ministry expresses concern for the intensified expansion of Israel’s settlements, testified by the Israeli authorities’ recent approval of the plan to build 944 housing units in Pisgat Ze’ev settlement,” said a ministry statement.
