European Countries Voice Concerns about Israeli Construction Plans in Al-Quds - Tasnim News Agency

(Tasnim) – Four European countries expressed deep concerns about the recent Israeli decision to advance plans for building hundreds of new settler units in East al-Quds, including between Givat HaMatos and Har Homa areas.



In a statement released on Wednesday, the Foreign Ministries of France, Germany, Italy and Spain have called on Israel to stop the construction of illegal settler units in East al-Quds as the regime steps up its land grab and forced eviction policies in the occupied Palestinian lands in defiance of international law.

“The new housing units would further disconnect the West Bank from East Jerusalem (al-Quds) and constitute an additional obstacle to the Two-State Solution. We urge the Israeli authorities to reverse this decision,” they said.

“This decision directly threatens the viability of a future Palestinian state. Israeli settlements are in clear violation of international law and stand in the way of a just, lasting and comprehensive peace between Israelis and Palestinians.”

They further raised alarm at Israeli evictions and demolitions in the East al-Quds neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah.
