Netanyahu spokesman: Decision to build 1,100 homes in neighborhood located over Green Line doesn’t contradict peace efforts.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday rejected Western and Arab complaints that the planned construction of 1,100 new homes in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo would complicate Middle East peace efforts.
“Gilo is not a settlement nor an outpost. It is a neighborhood in the very heart of Jerusalem, about five minutes from the center of town,” Netanyahu’s spokesman Mark Regev said.
