The Israeli leftist movement Peace Now said in a report that Israel has started building 14 new housing units in Ras Al-Amod neighborhood in eastern Jerusalem.

It added that around 1,900 Jewish settlers were currently residing in 120 buildings in the Palestinian suburbs in eastern Jerusalem.

For its part, the Israeli-controlled municipality of Jerusalem said on Sunday that Arabs and Jews are entitled to live in any suburb of the "capital" and to purchase buildings wherever they want.

The announcement coincided with the initiation of indirect talks between the PA in Ramallah and the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) after the USA verbally pledged to freeze all IOA settlement projects in occupied Jerusalem.
