Israel – Approval of two settlement projects by the Israeli authorities (September 28, 2016)


France condemns the recent approval of settlement plans involving the construction of 98 homes near the settlement of Shilo in the northern West Bank and the creation of an industrial zone near Ramallah.

France reaffirms that settlement activity is illegal under international law and that it undermines the two-state solution which remains the only way to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
