Press Release Regarding Israel's Illegal Settlement Activities , 20.11.2014

No: 359, 20 November 2014

We strongly condemn Israel’s decision to construct 78 new housing units in two illegal settlement areas in East Jerusalem. These unilateral and unacceptable steps taken by Israel contrary to the international law despite all the warnings and condemnation of Turkey and the world do not serve any other purpose than further escalation between the parties.
