Israeli government approves more than 2,000 new Jewish-only apartheid settlement units in illegally-occupied West Bank as they laugh at the world – new units in 2020 could pass 12,000

Secretary-General of the Arab League Ahmed Aboul Gheit has condemned Israel’s move to approve the construction of around 2,000 new housing units in the settlements of the occupied West Bank.

In comments released on Thursday, Aboul Gheit noted that the resumption of illegal settlement activity comes despite the Israeli government’s claims that it is seeking peace in the region. The approvals remain a formidable obstacle to the implementation of a two-state solution to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, he said.

“[The] Netanyahu government’s insistence on moving forward with settlement activity to satisfy the extreme right wing reflects its rejection this solution and even its commitment to destroy the chances of achieving it in the future,” Gheit said.
