Press Release Regarding Israel's Approval Of 560 Additional Units At Illegal Settlements , 23.01.2017

No: 23, 23 January 2017

We condemn Israel's approval of the construction of 560 additional units at the illegal settlements on the Palestinian territories that it keeps under occupation.

Israel's continuation of the said policy despite the UN Security Council Resolution numbered 2334 and dated 23 December 2016 that condemned the illegal settlement activities and put on record that such activities destroy the ground for the two state solution is another indication of its disregard for the international law and the international community.
