Israel’s new prime minister has re-launched a controversial project for the construction of over 3,400 settler units in the Occupied West Bank. The so-called E-1 project involves the construction at an unbuilt area of the occupied land. It cuts land access between Palestinian-inhabited territories in the West Bank, rendering any future unified Palestinian state unviable. Former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also tried to advance the project. But it was halted under pressure from the international community, the Palestinian Authority and rights groups. The project is also expected to draw objections from Prime Minister Naftali Bennett's left-wing coalition partners as well as the US. All Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian land are illegal under international law.
