No:35, 1 February 2017, Press Release Regarding Israel’s Approval For The Construction Of 3.000 Additional Units In Illegal Settlements In Occupied Palestinian Territories , 01.02.2017

We condemn Israeli Government’s approval for the construction of 3.000 additional units in illegal settlements on the occupied Palestinian territories.


Israel’s continuation, despite the constant warnings of the international community, of such acts that threaten and destroy the basis for a lasting peace causes dismay.
