How Many Homes in Two Outposts?

You may have read this:

According to Haaretz, the Higher Planning Council of the Civil Administration agreed to advance a master plan for the Ma’aleh Michmash area east of Ramallah.  If it goes ahead, the move will retroactively approve two outposts and add thousands of homes to the settlements in the region.

If you know anything at all about "outposts", you know that two outposts, combined, probably contain less than 100 houses.  Michmas itself numbers some 250 people altogether.

Just saying.


Regional master plan approved last week will see two outposts retroactively approved, and existing settlements get thousands of more homes

Long live the comma.
