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.

 Between 200 and 300 settlers are scheduled to move to the new settlement.

Haaretz paper has earlier revealed that Amihai is to be built on 14 dunums of a Palestinian-owned agricultural land south of Nablus.

The land’s owner has appealed against the Israeli confiscation plans.

Amihai is the first settlement to be created by Israeli cabinet vote in over 20 years.
