LONDON, Wednesday, January 08, 2020 (WAFA) – The United Kingdom condemned today Israeli government plans to build around 2000 new housing units in its illegal settlements in the occupied territories.
British Minister for the Middle East and North Africa, Andrew Murrison, said in a statement that the “UK condemns the Israeli government’s advancement of yet more plans for over 1,900 housing units across the West Bank” and called on Israel “to halt settlement expansion immediately.”
He said, “It is the UK’s longstanding position that settlements are illegal under international law and undermine the viability of the two-state solution.”
