Israel/ Palestinian Territories – Settlement activity (20 January 2021)


France condemns the recent decisions related to the construction of more than 2,500 new homes in the West Bank and East Jerusalem settlements and nearly 1,300 homes in the settlement of Givat Hamatos in East Jerusalem.

France calls on the Israeli authorities not to implement these decisions. It calls on the parties to avoid any unilateral measures that could undermine the two-state solution based on international law and the agreed parameters.
