Abu Rudeineh condemns Netanyahu’s announcement to build new settlement in E1 area


RAMALLAH, Tuesday, February 25, 2020 (WAFA) - Presidential spokesman, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, condemned today Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s announcement to build 3,500 housing units in a new settlement in E1 area, east of occupied Jerusalem, saying that it comes in the context of the Israeli policy that would push matters into an abyss.

He said this decision is the result of the biased and dangerous American policy in favor of the Israeli occupation, which led to a situation that violates international law, transgresses the red lines, and contradicts with United Nations resolutions on settlements, specifically Security Council resolution 2334 of 2016, which confirmed the illegality of the Israeli settlements.

The spokesman said Netanyahu’s decision challenges the statement that was passed unanimously on Monday by the UN Security Council to refrain from undermining viability of two-state solution.

“We warn the Israeli government against continuing with this escalated policy that will not bring security and stability to anyone, but rather increase tension and violence in the region,” he said.
