Arab foreign ministers meeting in Libya have agreed to raise a fund of $500m to support Palestinians living in Jerusalem.
The ministers, who are in the Libyan city of Sirte ahead of an Arab League summit over the weekend, hope the fund will help counter Israel's settlement drive within the Holy City.
"Yes, they have agreed," Amr Moussa, the Arab League's secretary general, told reporters when asked if the fund had been approved.
Final ratification will come when the decision is submitted to Arab leaders when they gather on Saturday and Sunday.
