RAMALLAH/AMMAN — Israeli occupation authorities announced Wednesday that the construction of nearly 3,000 new illegal settlement homes across the occupied West Bank has been approved, just hours after the outpost "Legalisation bill" passed its final committee vote in Israel’s Knesset on Tuesday, according to Israeli radio.

Palestinian presidency spokesperson Nabil Abu Rudeinah announced on Wednesday that urgent consultations have begun in response to renewed Israeli occupation settlement activities in occupied Palestinian territories.

"We have started urgent consultations in order to take the necessary measures to confront settlement activities", said Abu Rudeinah.

He also called on the new US administration to "rein in the Israeli government policy which will destroy the peace process".
