RAMALLAH, Thursday, October 7, 2021 (WAFA) – A leading Fatah and government official yesterday slammed Israel’s announcement of the construction of thousands of new settler units, north of occupied Jerusalem.

Fatah Central Committee Member Hussein al-Sheikh, who also serves as the head of the Palestinian Civil Affairs Commission, denounced Israel’s decision to resume an old project to build 10,000 settler housing units in the Qalandia area of occupied Jerusalem, saying “it kills the two-state solution.”

“The announcement of 10,000 settlement units in Qalandia, ]known to Israelis as[ Atarot, is a confirmation of the right-wing settlement approach of this government,” he tweeted.

“It kills the two-state solution and it sets the beginning of an upcoming explosion and minimizes the options,” he added.
