Britain condemned Israel's decision to advance construction of settlement buildings in an area of occupied West Bank.
‘Israel’s decision to advance the construction of 1,257 settlement buildings in the Givat Hamatos area of the occupied West Bank, would violate international law, and risks causing serious damage to the prospects for a viable Palestinian State,’ minister for the Middle East and North Africa James Cleverly said.
Cleverly said the UK ‘condemn this decision, which is incompatible with Israel’s declared goal of peace, and call for both the tender process and the advancement of other settlements in East Jerusalem and elsewhere in the West Bank to be suspended immediately.’
Last weekend, the Israel Land Authority announced that it had opened up tenders for more than 1,257 new structures in the settlement of Givat Hamatos, according to the Israeli authorities. (QNA)
