Tehran, Oct 28, IRNA -- The Israeli occupation government has approved the construction of more than 20,000 new residential units in the settlement of Maale Adumim, east of Al-Quds.

Sources cited a comprehensive development agreement between the Israeli Ministry of Construction and Housing and the Maale Adumim Municipality to build thousands of housing units in the Zionist settlement in the coming years.

The Israeli Minister of Construction and Housing, Yoav Galant, said We welcome the signing of the comprehensive agreement that will lead to the development and substantial increase in the population of Maale Adumim.

The Zionist regime is engaged in construction of settlement units while the United Nations passed a resolution on December 23, 2016, demanding end of the Zionist regime's construction of settlers unit in the occupied lands.

14 members of the United Nations Security Council's including four permanent members of China, France, Russia and Britain voted for the resolution while the US abstained.

The resolution rejected building settlers in occupied lands units as illegitimate.
