Press Release Regarding The Un Security Council Resolution On Israel’s Illegal Settlement Activities
No: 332, 23 December 2016
We welcome the Resolution adopted by the UN Security Council today which notes that Israel’s settlement activities on the occupied Palestinian
territories are contrary to the international law. It is important that at the resolution which emphasizes that Israel should fulfill its legal
obligations as the occupying power, it is confirmed that the settlements pose an obstacle to the vision for the two state solution.
We reiterate our call to Israel to abide by this resolution that reflects the joint approach of the international community and stop at once its ongoing illegal settlement activities in East Jerusalem and the West Bank.
