    Israel approves 566 new homes in East Jerusalem settlements
    "The rules of the game have changed with Donald Trump," the city's mayor declared after approving the homes. Benjamin Netanyahu had delayed a vote on the homes until the end of Barack Obama's presidency.

    Israeli authorities approved building permits for 566 new homes in East Jerusalem settlements, city officials announced on Sunday.
    The approvals came just two days after the inauguration of US President Donald Trump who had vowed to provide strong support for Israel during his election campaign.
    "The rules of the game have changed with Donald Trump's arrival as president,"  the city's deputy mayor Meir Turjeman told the AFP news agency.
    "We no longer have our hands tied as in the time of Barack Obama. Now we can finally build."

    Donald Trump campaigned strongly in favor of Israel
    Turjeman said plans for 11,000 other homes in East Jerusalem were also being processed, but did not say when they would move forward.
    In December Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu postponed a Jerusalem city council vote on issuing the permits after the US allowed the passing of a highly critical resolution by the United Nations Security Council.
    It demanded "Israel immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including east Jerusalem." Netanyahu refused to back down from settlement construction, despite the December resolution, and issued a series of diplomatic retributions.
    Trump chastised then-US President Barack Obama's administration for abstaining from the vote and the Republican-controlled US House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly in favor of a bipartisan measure declaring unwavering support for Israel and condemning the UN stance on Jewish settlements.
    Trump's new ambassador to Israel had close ties to West Bank developments and was reportedly hostile to a two-state solution.

    The US broke tradition and abstained from a Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements, allowing it to pass
    Netanyahu to call Trump
    Netanyahu said Sunday he would phone Trump later in the day for their first talks since his inauguration.
    Netanyahu said he planned to discuss the conflict with the Palestinians, Syria and "the Iranian threat."
    Netanyahu had strongly opposed the nuclear deal between Iran and global powers, including the US, which Trump had also been critical of in his campaign.
