What we are seeing is disappointing, the official said during a meeting with the inhabitants of the Khirbet Humsa al-Fawqa’s Bedouin village in the northern Jordan Valley, and destroyed some few days ago by the Israeli security forces.

Tel Aviv does not comply with international treaties, especially the Fourth Geneva Convention, Burgsdorff said.

The diplomat recalled that the EU rejects this policy and therefore will work to try to put an end to the strategy of demolishing structures in the Palestinian territories.

The representative was accompanied by ambassadors and consuls from several EU member states, such as Ireland, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Spain and France.

A week ago, an official Palestinian source claimed that Israel built more than 31,000 homes in the 144 colonies built in the West Bank and East Jerusalem since 2004 and 139 other outposts for future settlements.
