“The housing ministry announced tenders for the planning of 20 000 settler homes,” Peace Now director Yariv Oppenheimer told Israeli public radio.

But Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office stressed he had opposed some 1 200 of the homes slated for construction in the highly contentious area of the West Bank known as E1.
