Jerusalem (JTA) — One day af-
ter a ministerial committee au-
thorized continued, but slower,
building in the communities sur-
rounding Jerusalem, Jewish set-
tlers took to the hills to stake
their claim to lands they said
were slated for development.
Residents from Ma'aleh Amos,
located in the Gush Etzion bloc
of settlements south of
Jerusalem, set up caravans on
three hilltops in the area, saying
they intended to build at the site.
Bedouins from the nearby vil-
lage of Kissan protested the
move. The Civil Administration
ordered the caravans to be taken
down at two of the hilltops, say-
ing they lay outside the settle-
ment's development plans.
But the Civil Administration
was reviewing the third site,
which was closest to the Bedouin
village and about a mile from
Ma'aleh Amos, but apparently
within the settlement's develop-
ment boundaries.
Earlier, residents from Kochav
Ya'acov, near the West Bank
town of Ramallah, moved trac-
tors to an undeveloped plot of
land, where they planned to build
a new neighborhood.
Palestinians from the area
threatened to demonstrate, and
the Civil Administration ordered
the work halted.
Residents of the settlement,
along with members of the Coun-
cil of Jewish Communities in
Judea, Samaria and Gaza,
said the land is part of the set-
tlement.
Elhanan Rappoport, a resident
of Kochav Ya'acov, told Israel Ra-
dio why the community had de-
cided to start work now.
"We want to remove any
doubts over ownership," he said.
"Maybe the land is outside the
current army fence" surrounding
the settlement.
"But this land belongs to the
settlement," he said. "If
[Palestinians] perceive our ac-
tions as provocation, that is up to
them. This is part of the settle-
ment."
The ministerial committee on
building in the territories autho-
rized the completion or construc-
tion of some 4,000 privately
financed apartments in
Jerusalem's so-called satellite
communities. This included
retroactive approval of apart-
ments that had already been sold.
The committee approved the
sale of 800 apartments in Ma'aleh
Adumim, as well as the gradual
building of 1,000 additional
apartments over the course of the
next two years.
The ministers approved the
completion of 1,000 apartments

in Betar, as well as a plan to build
900 more.
The committee also authorized
the completion of 340 apartments
in Givat Ze'ev, and the planning
for 800 more units, all to be lo-
cated on private lands within the
settlement's existing boundaries.
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres said that the government
had also approved the completion
of 7,000 apartments, which are
in advanced stages of construc-
tion.
Settlement leaders at first crit-
icized the ministerial committee's
decision, saying it was mislead-
ing the public by authorizing
apartments which had already
been approved.
But leaders of the communi-
ties surrounding Jerusalem lat-
er met with Prime Minister
Yitzhak Rabin and emerged say-
ing they were satisfied.
In the words of Ma'aleh Adu-
mim Mayor Benny Kashriel, "We
got what we wanted."
The Palestinian Authority re-
acted angrily to the ministers' de-
cisions on construction.
It warned that any continued
building violates the Palestinian
self-rule accord and could lead to
further unrest and demonstra-
tions.
Palestinians protesting Israeli
settlement activity launched
demonstrations in several West
Bank towns, including Hebron,
Tulkarm and Nablus.

IDF Officer
To Be Disciplined

Jerusalem (JTA) — An Israeli
army officer will face discipline
for sexually offensive statements
he reportedly made during a lec-
ture to Jerusalem high school stu-
dents.
Addressing students at the Re-
havia High School, Col. Gershon
Hacohen reportedly said that
"men are meant to be warriors,
just as women are meant to be
prostitutes."
Col. Hacohen was also quot-
ed as having said that women sol-
diers serving in clerical positions
in the Israel Defense Force could
easily be replaced by computers
and telephone answering ma-
chines. Col. Hacohen later apol-
ogized for the remarks. In an
interview on Army Radio, he did
not deny having said "something
to the effect" that prostitution is
a female occupation just as fight-
ing is a male one.
"I made a mistake. It just
slipped out. I wasn't thinking,"
he said.
