Israeli Parliament Okays Millions To Finance Settlements

The Israeli parliament's finance committee approved Sunday 177 million shekels for the Settlement Division, a controversial body which bolsters the settlements in the occupied West Bank, Xinhua reported. Part of the World Zionist Organization, the Settlement Division has served over the past years as the government's operational arm for construction and development in the settlements as well as in Israel. Of the approved budget, 8.5 million shekels were earmarked for an unspecified purpose in the Mount Hebron area in the southern West Bank.
