A contentious issue between Israelis and Palestinians that some say could derail Mideast peace talks is set to reach a milestone on Sunday.
Israel's moratorium on settlement construction in the West Bank is scheduled to end Sunday. Israelis and Palestinians are in the initial rounds of face-to-face peace talks, and Palestinians have said a restart by the Israelis could be reason enough to end talks.
A massive rally of settlers is expected on Sunday to show support for continued building.
Settlers and members of parliament are expected to "break ground" in the area. Bulldozers are also expected at the scene - a gesture to show that settlers are ready to begin building again.
