No: 324, 6 November 2019, Press Release Regarding Illegal Settlement Activities Of Israel

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 06.11.2019

The approval by Israel to build 2342 additional housing units in the illegal settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories is another obvious example of Israel's policy to change the demographic structure of the region.

The total number of illegal settlement approvals in 2019 have seen an increase of almost 50% compared to the data of 2018. This very fact is solid evidence of Israel’s aim to destroy the vision for a two-state solution.

We reject this illegal decision of Israel, which continues to violate the fundamental rights of the Palestinians by mockingly ignoring international law and reiterate our call on all members of the international community to fulfill their responsibility to counter the oppression and occupation of the Palestinian people.
