Israel to construct bridge to connect two illegal West bank settlements

BETHLEHEM, The Israeli authorities approved the construction of a bridge to connect two illegal Israeli settlements in the Bethlehem area, in the southern West Bank, Sunday said a local activist.

Coordinator of the National Committee against the Wall and Settlements in Bethlehem, Hassan Brijiyeh, told WAFA the Israeli authorities decided to build a 355-meters long suspended bridge that would connect the settlement of Beitar Illit A with the settlement of Beitar Illit B.

The bridge would see land belonging to Palestinians in the village of Husan to the west of Bethlehem being taken over for the benefit of the bridge.
