Foreign Ministry condemns Israeli plans to build a settlement in E1 area


RAMALLAH, Tuesday, February 25, 2020 (WAFA) – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates condemned today an announcement by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to build 3500 housing units in a new settlement in E1 area, east of occupied Jerusalem.

“The ministry believes that the Netanyahu announcement about settlement projects is an implementation of the terms of so-called deal of the century in order to create new facts on the ground under the American umbrella and to undermine any opportunity to create a contiguous Palestinian state on the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital,” it said in a statement.

The ministry called on the international community to act quickly, and not to be content with condemnation, in order to protect the two-state solution as per United Nations resolutions.
