Israel plans 2,500 new settler homes in West Bank:


Israel’s defense minister said he will seek approval next week to fast-track constructi­on of 2,500 new West Bank settlement homes in 2018, an announceme­nt likely to further ratchet up tensions between Israelis and Palestinia­ns. Avigdor Liberman also said he will advance 1,400 other units that are in planning stages. Much of the internatio­nal community views the settlement­s as illegal.
