The Israeli authorities began construction of the largest settlement street in the northern West Bank, in an area south of Nablus.
According to Safa translation, Israel National News said that the heavy machinery yesterday launched the construction on the Huwara bypass street, at a cost of 260 million Israeli shekels.
The length of the street is 7.2 km and will be completed within two years.
The road links the Daher al-Jabal settlements around Nablus with the Za'tara junction south of Huwara and from there to the center of the Israeli entity.
And the settlement street includes thousands of dunams of agricultural lands from the lands of Huwara and Beta towns south of Nablus.
The official of the settlement assembly in the northern West Bank, Yossi Dagan, praised the move, describing the street as strategic.
The project comes in light of the Israeli government's support for the construction of several settlement streets in the West Bank, at a cost of 800 million Israeli shekels.Source : Safa
