Palestine denounces Israeli settlements’ expansion in West Bank

Palestine denounces Israeli settlements’ expansion in West Bank

Ramallah, Feb 13 (Prensa Latina) On Monday, Hussein al-Sheikh, General Secretary of the Palestine Liberation Organization, denounced the Israeli cabinet's decision to recognize nine settlements in the West Bank, a territory occupied since 1967.

We will study all possible ways to respond to this escalation by Benjamin Netanyahu’s far-right Government, the leader said on his Twitter account.

Tel Aviv’s actions represent “an open war against the Palestinian people and require immediate international intervention,” he said.

On Sunday evening, Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyed reminded that international law and Security Council resolutions consider that all settlements in the West Bank are illegal.

Although all Israeli settlements are illegal under the international community and the UN Security Council, Israel distinguished between those authorized and those not.

As part of its Government’s program, the Netanyahu-headed coalition approved the legalization of 65 outposts in the West Bank in late 2022.

According to several sources, more than 450,000 Israeli settlers live in 132 settlements and 147 outposts across the West Bank, and 200,000 others in East Jerusalem.
