Press Release Regarding Israel’s Approval For The Construction Of 181 Additional Housing Units In The Illegal Settlements In The Occupied East Jerusalem , 03.11.2016

No: 279, 3 November 2016

We condemn Israel’s approval of construction of 181 additional housing units in the illegal settlements in the occupied East Jerusalem.

These steps, which violate the fundamental rights of Palestinian people on their own territory and undermine the basis for peace, cannot be accepted.
