Israel has unveiled plans for 3,000 new homes for Jewish settlers in the occupied West Bank, the fourth such announcement in the less than two weeks since Donald Trump took office.
In 2014 the Israeli Supreme Court ordered the removal of around 250 people, living in the Amona settlement, illegally built two decades ago on private Palestinian land.
Hours earlier, the Israeli government approved plans to build 3,000 new homes at settlements in the West Bank.
The Palestinians and the worldwide community consider authorized settlements and outposts illegal or illegitimate, and an obstacle to the peace process.

And I would suspect as long as they're not terrible people that they will move through before another half a day today. While the Washington Post says it "appeared" that Priebus was walking back the order, it was a definite change.

Israel's parliament has postponed a vote that would allow it to appropriate hundreds of hectares of Palestinian land in the occupied West Bank, the parliament's website said Tuesday.

Under the new law, settlers could remain on the land if they built there without prior knowledge of Palestinian ownership or if homes were constructed at the state's instruction. "The police won't be violent if you are not violent", stated the instructions issued by Amona's resident-led campaign against the evacuation. While most of the pro-settlement activists were singing and chanting against the operation, some protesters hurled rocks, injuring 20 police officers, according to police spokeswoman Luba Samri.
The Amona outpost is home to around 50 families, some 250 people. The global community views them as a major obstacle to peace as they are built on land the Palestinians see as part of their future state.
The Palestinians want the West Bank as well as the Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem, areas captured by Israel in the 1967 war, as part of their hoped-for state.
The former United States administration of Barack Obama despaired of Israel's accelerating settlement expansion and, in a sharp break with long-standing policy, withheld its veto on a critical UN Security Council resolution in its final days.
