The Civil Administration on Judea and Samaria issues permits for 90 new housing units that are currently being built in the Beit El settlement.
The permits are part of a compensation plan for the evacuation of the Ulpana outpost agreed upon eight months prior.
The move was described by Peace Now Secretary-General Yariv Oppenheimer as a "mistaken and ill-timed decision", given the fact that US President Barack Obama is due to visit Israel in a bid to renew and improve diplomatic ties between the two countries.
