EU denounces approval of fresh settlement homes

06-08-2015 14:27


The European Union (EU) panned the Israeli government for green-lighting construction projects in the West Bank settlement of Beit El and Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem beyond the 1967 Green Line boundary.


The recent decision “calls into question the Israeli government’s stated commitment to a negotiated two-state solution in the Middle East Peace Process,” a EU statement read.


“We urge the government of Israel to urgently reverse recent decisions and put an end to settlement expansion,” it continued.


Over the last two decades, Jewish settlements have expanded rapidly across the West Bank and East Jerusalem and have severely constrained the possibility of a contiguous Palestinian state.
