No: 38, 7 February 2017, Press Release Regarding Israel's Adoption Of A Law That Gives Approval To Various Illegal Settlements At The Occupied Palestinian Territories , 07.02.2017

We strongly condemn Israeli Parliament's adoption of a law that gives approval to various settlements consisting of 4.000 units build on the private property of the Palestinians.



The policy Israel persistently pursues despite the UN Security Council Resolution dated 23 December 2016 and numbered 2334 which put on record that illegal settlement activities at the occupied Palestinian territories are destroying the basis for the two state solution, is unacceptable.
