Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Interior Minister Gideon Saar have agreed to build 1,500 new homes in the east Jerusalem settlement of Ramat Shlomo, Israeli army radio reported Wednesday.

The early-morning report came shortly after Israel freed 26 veteran Palestinian prisoners alongside US-brokered peace talks.
