Trump may be more sympathetic to West Bank settlements, but Palestinian families would be compensated


William Booth and Ruth Eglash have an important front page story in the Washington Post, “Right-wing Israelis see opening on settlements”. The story says that a Trump administration may be more supportive of Israel with respect to settlements apparently outside of the approved zones (like Zone C) or on private lands previously owned by Palestinians.  But the article says that Palestinian families would be compensated with other land.
 
Vox Media recently explained how the settlements work by Zone.  The report caused some controversy among some Palestinian-supportive groups who claim that there are many illegal settlements.
