A Palestinian official report has accused the Israeli government of taking steps to erase the green line through establishing settlement projects on its both sides.
These projects would be funded from the general budget that was approved by the Knesset last Wednesday.
The report was issued by the national bureau for defending the land and resisting settlement, which is an affiliate of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).
The bureau affirmed that this Israeli budget reflected the systematic policy pursued by the government of Benjamin Netanyahu to torpedo any chance for the establishment of an independent Palestinian state.
The bureau said that Israel’s settlement plans accelerated recently especially after it announced its intent to carry out the industrial zone project on 310 dunums of land annexed from the Palestinian villages of Safa and Beit Sira, which are located on both sides of the green line.
