Israeli bulldozers prepare the ground for the construction of a West Bank road Thursday, Aug. 5, 2004, on a hill in the outskirts of the Jewish settlement of Maaleh Adumim, where Israeli officials say they will build thousands of new housing units. The project, intended to link this sprawling Jewish settlement to Jerusalem 4 miles (6 kms) away, defies an internationally supported peace plan demanding a halt in Israeli settlement activity.
