Foreign Ministry says Israel’s measures in Jerusalem undermine peace

RAMALLAH, May 29, 2017 (WAFA) – Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned, in a statement Monday, the Israeli government for holding the weekly cabinet meeting under the Al-Aqsa Mosque and for approving several illegal procedures.

The statement said these procedures include the allocation of millions of dollars to fund “Judaizing” projects in East Jerusalem; construction of a car cable in the vicinity of the al-Buraq Wall; expansion of Jewish settlements in the city; construction of tunnels, elevators and passages to link al-Buraq Wall with the Jewish Quarter; and a plan to “Israelize” education in Jerusalem.

The ministry condemned the Israeli government for these procedures, saying they may undermine any chance of peace or a two-state solution of Palestine and Israel living side by side.

The ministry also called on the UN Security Council and the other concerned parties to uphold their legal and moral responsibility and to take the necessary measures to force Israel to stop these plans.
