Press Release Regarding Israel’s Illegal Settlement Activities , 25.12.2014

No: 404, 25 December 2014

We strongly condemn Israel’s continued illegal settlement activities on the occupied Palestinian territory despite all the warnings by the international community, including its latest approval of construction permits for 380 housing units in East Jerusalem.

These steps that undermine the ground for a two-state solution and aim at creating a de facto situation in the occupied Jerusalem are contrary to the international law and can not be accepted.
