Amona will be the first Jewish settlement in the West Bank for more than 25 years and will rehouse 40 families it evicted from a wildcat outpost in February 2017. Pro-settlement hard-liners who dominate Netanyahu's coalition and oppose Palestinian statehood on security or religious grounds had pressed him to keep that promise.

"As I promised, today the work on the ground began to establish the new settlement for the settlers of Amona".

Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday he has the "privilege" of building the new settlement.

Palestinian Authority spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh said the move showed that Israel was trying to stop the Trump Administration's efforts to renew peace talks and said it is a "serious escalation" of settlement building. This is going to be greatly complicated by the new settlement, of course.

While Israel has continued to expand existing settlement blocs, no new settlements have been built since the 1993 Oslo peace accords, which were meant to lay the framework for a future two-state solution.

Israel is moving forward with plans for almost 4,000 housing units and has issued 2,000 tenders for settlement construction in the occupied West Bank and east Jerusalem, he added.

In December, weeks before Trump was inaugurated, President Barack Obama allowed the U.N. Security Council to pass a resolution that declared all settlements in both areas to be illegal.

Mr Trump condemned the decision at the time.

Israeli and USA officials provided no information on what was to be discussed and there are no plans for Kushner to speak to the media or take any questions, maintaining the circumspect profile he has established since Trump took office. Settlements are also considered an obstacle to peace because they are built on land Palestinians claim for a future state.

The White House said on Sunday that Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, would arrive in Israel on Wednesday.

Palestinian sources said that ahead of Kushner's meeting with Abbas, they had been asked to draw up a list of 12 "bullet point" demands they would want met in any negotiations.
