East Jerusalem expansion

Image 7 of 8


Construction workers build a new housing development with an Israeli flag in the foreground in Har Homa on April 22, 2010. Plans to development Har Homa were drawn up in the 1980s, but were opposed by Israeli environmental groups working to preserve open areas. Construction began in 1997 under Benjamin Netanyahu, who saw building the homes as a legitimate expansion of Jerusalem.
