Or a settlement?
So says the occupier….

Israel says newly approved homes ‘not settlement’
JERUSALEM  — Israel on Wednesday rejected international outcry over its plans to build 1,100 new homes in Gilo in annexed Palestinian east Jerusalem, insisting the area was “not a settlement.”

“Gilo is not a settlement, nor a settlement outpost. It is a neighborhood which constitutes an integral part of the center of Jerusalem,” a senior Israeli official told Agence France-Presse.

The move, which was signed off by Israel’s interior ministry on Tuesday, drew a sharply worded response from the Palestinian Authority, and a chorus of condemnation from Europe, the US and China.

Gilo lies in the part of Jerusalem which Israel captured along with the West Bank from Jordan during the 1967 Six Day War and later occupied and annexed in a move not recognized by the international community.

Israel considers both halves of the Holy City its “eternal, indivisible” capital.
