Israel's settlement subsidy policy

Israel pauses construction, but throws money at settlements already in Jordan Valley.

    Israel has announced a partial moratorium on settlement construction.

    Yet, at the same time, it has invested in those already established in a bid to solidify their existence.

    In the Jordan Valley there are 22 settlements viewed as illegal under international law.

    But, as Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston reports, they benefit from a system of Israeli funding specifically focused on kick-starting settler economies.
