(Washington, DC) -- Obama administration officials are expressing concern over an Israeli plan to appropriate land in the West Bank. The State Department is calling the plan counterproductive to peace efforts in the region. Israel laid claim Sunday to nearly a thousand acres of land to be used for expanding settlements. A State Department official urged the Israeli government to reverse its decision.
