Teddy Stadium was initially planned for Ramat Shlomo, but in the wake of Haredi proteststhe stadium and sports complex was moved to Jerusalem's Malha neighbourhood.
Less than 200 meters separate the neighborhood's furthermost houses from the first row of homes in Shuafat and Beit Hanina.
In June 2008, Israel's interior ministry approved construction of an additional 1,300 apartments in Ramat Shlomo. Israel says that most of the building is on land annexed by the state and thus does not violate its commitment not to build on disputed land.
In October 2014, Netanyahu approved the construction of 660 additional units, followed by an additional 500 in November. In November 2015 Netanyahu gave approval to begin marketing the 1,000 properties.
The neighborhood is across the Green Line on land occupied by Israel since its capture from Jordan in the 1967 Six-Day War and annexed to Israel in a move not recognized by the international community. As such it is considered an Israeli settlement in East Jerusalem by the international community.Israel disputes this and considers Ramat Shlomo to be a neighborhood within the Israeli designated borders of Jerusalem. The New York Times printed an article referring to Ramat Shlomo as a settlement in the West Bank and two days later issued a correction, stating that "[i]t is a neighborhood in East Jerusalem, not a settlement in the West Bank".
The international community considers Israeli settlements to be illegal under international law, violating the Fourth Geneva Convention's prohibition on transferring civilian population into territory held under military occupation. Israel disputes that East Jerusalem is occupied territory and rejects that settlements are illegal.
A quarry from the period of the Second Temple was found at Ramat Shlomo. King Herod is believed to have used stones from this quarry for his massive construction project to expand the Temple Mount. Giant stones extracted from the quarry weighed several tons. Jewish tombs have also been discovered in Ramat Shlomo dating to this period.
