UN Special Coordinator expresses deep concern over Israeli settlement expansion plan

JERUSALEM, Sunday, October 24, 2021 (WAFA) – United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Tor Wennesland, today expressed deep concern over the Israeli settlement expansion announcement.

"Today, the Israeli authorities announced tenders for the construction of more than 1,300 housing units in the occupied West Bank," said Wennesland in a statement.

"I am deeply concerned by continued Israeli settlement expansion in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem. I reiterate that all settlements are illegal under international law, remain a substantial obstacle to peace, and must cease immediately," he said.
