Israeli authorities are expected on Wednesday to give the green light for the construction of 1,071 new settler homes in six West Bank settlements, watchdog Peace Now said in a statement on Tuesday.

Peace Now said that a government committee was expected to grant initial approval for plans to build 339 settlements at Galgal and Almog settlements in the Jordan valley, Kfar Adumim northeast of Jerusalem and at Kochav Yaacov and Shilo near Ramallah.

Another 732 units were to be given a more advanced level of approval, one stage before the start of construction, at the West Bank's biggest settlement, Modiin Ilit, a community of 58,000 ultra-Orthodox Jews west of Ramallah, it said.
