Israel plans to build two new neighborhoods in eastern Jerusalem. The project, approved this month by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, will consist of 3,500 new housing units and effectively will link the capital with the West Bank settlement of Ma’aleh Adumim, political sources said Monday. To allow free travel between the nearest Palestinian cities, Ramallah and Bethlehem, Israel intends to pave a bypass road around Jerusalem.
