Israel – Palestinian Territories – Q&A – Excerpts from the daily press briefing (15.11.16)


Q - On November 13, an Israeli ministerial committee approved a bill to legalize outposts in the Palestinian Territories built without government permission. Do you have any response?

R - This bill, if adopted, would be another attack on the two-State solution and would further aggravate tensions on the ground. It is raising serious concerns in France.

France reiterates that settlement activities, in all their forms, are illegal under international law. We call on Israel to abide by its international obligations.
