Gaza15June2OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (PNIC):-The Israeli Occupation Authorities (IOA) on Monday started building the new Amihai settlement near the West Bank city of Nablus to house the evacuated settlers of the Amona outpost, Israeli media sources revealed.

The Israeli Seventh Channel said that the Israeli Interior Minister, Aryeh Deri, informed officials that all legal procedures related to the former Amona outpost have been completed and the construction of the new settlement would begin today.

The Israeli government allocated some 60 million shekels (approximately $16 million) to build the new settlement of Amihai.
