The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

WASH­ING­TON: The US ac­cused Is­rael of a be­trayal of trust yes­ter­day, in an un­usual re­buke over its plans to build hun­dreds of new set­tle­ment homes deep in the West Bank. Days af­ter Pres­i­dent Barack Obama ap­proved a US$38 bil­lion (RM157 bil­lion) Is­raeli mil­i­tary aid pack­age, the White House railed at the con­struc­tion of 300 hous­ing units on land “far closer to Jor­dan than Is­rael”. Press sec­re­tary Josh Earnest said Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu’s word had been called into ques­tion. – AFP
