Ariel Sharon reportedly approved a West Bank settlement’s expansion in violation of understandings between Israel and the United States. The Israeli prime minister and Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz ordered 600 new housing units for Ma’aleh Adumim, Ma’ariv said Sunday, which would almost certainly necessitate expanding the settlement’s jurisdiction and violating an understanding with U.S. Ambassador Daniel Kurtzer whereby Washington has to clear any such move first.
