The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates condemned the approval of the authorities in the Israeli Occupation to build 3,557 new settlement units inside the Occupied Palestinian territories.
The official spokesperson for the ministry, Ambassador Haitham Abu Al-Ful, confirmed that this step is a flagrant and grave breach of international law and resolutions of international legitimacy, foremost of which is Security Council Resolution No. 2334, stressing that the settlement policy, whether building or expanding settlements, confiscating land or displacing Palestinians is illegal, rejected and condemned.
Additionally, it was called a unilateral step that represents a violation of international law, and an undermining of the foundations of peace, and the chances of achieving a comprehensive and just peace on the basis of the two-state solution in accordance with the resolutions of international legitimacy.
