Palestinians work at a construction site in the neighborhood of Pisgat Zeev in East Jerusalem on Aug. 11. Israel's interior minister gave final authorization to build 1,600 apartments in disputed east Jerusalem and will approve 2,700 more in days, officials said, detailing a plan that could complicate diplomatic efforts to dissuade Palestinians from declaring statehood at the United Nations.
