Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu questioned on corruption allegations

Two days later, the defence ministry announced plans for 2,500 settler homes in the occupied West Bank.

"Indeed, the views of the global community on settlements couldn't be clearer - they are comprehensively set out in UN Security Council Resolution 2334 and in the declaration of the Paris Conference at which I participated earlier this month".

Trump, who has invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House next month, once described a potential Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement as "the ultimate deal".

The permits by a city planning committee had been put on hold due to pressure from Barack Obama's administration, Jerusalem Deputy Mayor Meir Turgeman said, according to The Times of Israel.

As of 2015, the rosters have been split between global and American players with both rookies and sophomores dispersed throughout. Exum has average 19.5 minutes over 33 games, including starts, mostly while starting point guard George Hill was injured.

The plans were approved by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

"We're building - and will continue to build", Netanyahu said Tuesday, commenting on the approval.

He said the Palestinians are discussing "all kind of ideas" with council members and others to ensure that the resolution, which calls for a halt to settlement building, is implemented.

He called "for an end to all settlement construction, and the reversal of these announcements".

He went "above and beyond" the call of duty, she says calling Officer Schwering her angle, her hero, and new best friend. Novak called Schwering "a genuine hero". "No, I have never been in that situation", said Schwering.

Israel's actions were also condemned by the United Nations along with the European Union on Wednesday. David Friedman, Trump's choice for ambassador to Israel, has said that he looks forward to performing his service "from the U.S. Embassy in Israel's eternal capital, Jerusalem".

The Israeli government has boosted plans for settlements on occupied Palestinian territory, which are illegal under global law, since US President Donald Trump, whose administration does not oppose the settlement activity, took office last week.

Giuliani, who was one of Trump's most vocal supporters during his campaign, pointed to the Islamic State (ISIS) and Iran as examples of more pressing concerns than the brewing Netanyahu scandal.
