Israel has approved plans for 176 new Jewish homes in occupied East Jerusalem. The expansion to the settlement of Nor Zion would make it the largest in the city, situated in the middle of a Palestinian neighbourhood. Israeli ministers are also expected to vote on Sunday on a controversial bill that would bring illegal West Bank settlements around Jerusalem under the jurisdiction of the city; a move Palestinians call annexation.

Find out why Israelis choose to live on occupied land, how they affect Palestinians, and why, despite international condemnation, the settlements continue to grow.

The demolition of Palestinian homes for Israeli settlements reached a ten-year high in 2016. While this activity led by the fanatical settler movement is illegal under international law, it is completely aided and abetted by the Israeli government. With hundreds on notice to be evicted and their homes destroyed, Abby Martin goes on-the-ground throughout the West Bank investigating this dire human rights situation. She speaks to residents living under regular settler attacks from encroaching settlements and outposts illegal even under Israeli law, and sees first-hand how this crisis is worsening. http://multimedia.telesurtv.net/v/the-empire-files-608068/
Despite Palestinian and international condemnation, Israel has gone forth with the construction of a new illegal settlement in the occupied West Bank. https://videosenglish.telesurtv.net/video/664636/israel-begins-construction-of-illegal-settlement/
United Nations Security Council Resolution #2334 is worded in a way that creates some very odd results. Yes, the Western Wall is now an "illegal settlement," and any Israeli activity there is a "flagrant violation of international law."

European Union illegal settlement and occupation activity on Israeli territory. Barry Shaw with Ari Briggs of Regavim in Area C in Judea & Samaria which, according to the signed Oslo Accords, should be under full Israeli control and administration until a final and permanent peace agreement with the Palestinians. This area, between Maale Adumim and Jerusalem, must remain under Israeli sovereignty for its strategic security interests. Ari shows Barry how the EU is blatantly breaching internationally binding agreements under the nose of the Israeli government.
Israel has approved another large set of plans for settler homes in the occupied West Bank. It is part of an Israeli government push to expand illegal settlement building and is increasing pessimism about progress towards a two-state solution.

Two days before the Israeli Supreme Court will hear the appeal submitted by Bil'in residents and Peace Now against the decision of the High Commission of Planning in the civil administration to 'launder' the illegal building in the settlement Matityahu East, agricultural work on land that the Israeli Civil Administration has defined as a private Palestinian 'enclave' was stopped after a tractor used for ploughing exposed the sewage pipes of the Matityahu East settlement. The head of the security of Modiin Elite warned the farmers that working the land was endangering their lives, because of buried electricity cables.

An Israeli official says he expects the number of settlements in the occupied West Bank to increase by up to 50 percent over the next five years. The Construction and Housing Minister says that the number of Israeli settlers in the region will spiral and reach six hundred thousand by 20-19. Uri Ariel also added that the negotiations between Palestinian Authority and Tel Aviv are in "dying throes". Palestinians blame Israel's settlement activities as the main reason behind the failure of talks. Most of the settlements are built in East Jerusalem al-Quds. The Palestinian Authority wants the city as the future capital of an independent Palestinian state. All Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian territories are illegal under international law.
In Israel the issue of settlement activity is a sensitive one. Successive UN resolutions have called for an end to illegal settlement activity and for existing settlements to be dismantled, but Israel has refused to comply. In a new twist, properties in these settlements are being offered up to foreign buyers. Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland investigates.
Illegal Israeli settlements continue to grow in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, and people like Canadian-Israeli Miriam Schwab are moving into predominantly Palestinian areas. Many Palestinian families worry they will be forced out of the city where they've lived for generations. In 2009, Israel evicted the Hanoun family from the home they had lived in since 1956. Sherihan Hanoun says no one has the right to take away the home where she was born and has a history.
