Hamas spokesman Hazem Qassem said in a press statement that the movement condemns the Israeli occupation announcement of a tender to build 1,257 housing units in a settlement in East Jerusalem.

 "This is the insistence of the occupation government to strike all international laws, decisions and norms, and this is a new aggression against our Palestinian people that comes with the support of the Trump administration, whose foreign minister is visiting settlements these days,” he said. 

 He added that this announcement of building settlement units came to support normalization agreements, and after receiving Israeli delegations in Arab capitals, and receive delegations from settler leaders. 

“This increases tension in the whole region and destabilizes the situation in the whole region,” Qassem added.
