Maan Lies Again

Israel approved construction of Road 9. This is how Maan reported it:

Israel starts construction on road linking settlements
NABLUS (Ma’an) — Israeli authorities have begun construction work on a West Bank road which will link cities within Israel and illegal settlements and outposts, a Palestinian Authority official said Sunday.Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma’an that Road 9 will link the coastal Israeli city of Hadera with illegal settlements in Jenin and the Jordan Valley.The project, due to be completed in 2014, will confiscate thousands of dunams of Palestinian land in the northern West Bank, Daghlas said.

Road 9 will be around 183km when finished, the PA official said, calling on the United States to pressure Israel to halt the project.

Road 9 is an east-west connector between 2 of Israel’s main north-south arteries. Its total length is 12 Km, and it will bypass the western part of route 65, one of two main roads that connects central Israel and the north.

Here’s a map.

As you can see, Maan’s article is just BS.
