Efforts have been under full swing by Israel’s Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan to construct new illegal settlement units in Occupied Jerusalem, Israeli sources reported on Monday.


Hebrew-speaking Channel 1 said Erdan has been seeking “security ways” to put into effect a bid to construct hundreds of settlement units near Ras al-Amoud area.


More security installations are expected to be installed around the main access roads to the projected settlement complex so as to prop up security measures in the area.


On Sunday, Erdan, along with a number of Israeli police officers toured the vicinities of the project.


Channel 1 quoted the minister as pledging to do whatever it takes to provide every single family that decides to settle in Silwan with “personal security.”


The project contravenes a resolution adopted by the UN Security Council on December 23, 2016, declaring Israeli settlements in the West Bank and Jerusalem illegitimate.
