The Palestinians "strongly condemn" an Israeli decision to approve the construction of 1,600 new settlement  in east Jerusalem, a Palestinian official told AFP on Thursday.

Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erakat denounced the Israeli interior ministry's announcement Thursday that it had given final approval for the construction of 1,600 homes in the east Jerusalem neighbourhood of Ramat Shlomo.

"We strongly condemn the new Israeli decision to build new settlement homes in east Jerusalem," he said shortly after the approval was announced.
