Five EU states urge a halt to settlements in occupied lands

Five EU states urge a halt to settlements in occupied lands”

Britain has lined up alongside the biggest states in Europe in a rare and united show of public anger towards Israel after the construction of nearly 5,000 new settlement units in the West Bank was approved.

Yesha Council, which represents settlers throughout the West Bank, expressed "joy" over the approvals.

"Settlement construction is illegal under worldwide law and is one of the major obstacles to peace", he said in a statement, calling on Israel to immediately cease all settlement-related activities. It also comes months after Israel promised to put on hold plans to annex parts of the West Bank in exchange for a USA -brokered normalization deal with the United Arab Emirates. All Israeli settlements are illegal under global law.

The Israeli military now plans to pour concrete into the suspect's bedroom, i24 News reported, permanently sealing access to that part of the house.

Peace Now views the new construction as "de facto annexation", which threatens the possibility of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Palestinians run away from tear gas fired by Israeli forces during a protest against Jewish settlements, in Asira al-Qibliya in the Israeli-occupied West Bank September 25, 2020.

Thanks to the passivity of the Arab reactionaries and support of the United States, the Zionist regime has announced its plans to develop the Zionist settlements.

"I believe that the focus now needs to be on getting the Palestinians and the Israelis back to the negotiating table".

It said around 2,000 more homes were expected to be approved on Thursday. Several hundred of the homes were already constructed and were approved retroactively.

Iran and its Houthi proxies have undermined peace and stability in Yemen, which has led to the breakdown of its civil society, Prince Faisal said.

Despite the coronavirus pandemic, Israel ramped up demolitions of Palestinian homes in the West Bank and East Jerusalem this year.
