Germany: Settlement Construction Could Lead to War
Local Editor

German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel warned Thursday that continued illegal ‘Israeli' settlement construction in the occupied West Bank could lead to war in the Middle East, Reuters reported.

Germany: Settlement Construction Could Lead to War

"We are concerned that unlimited construction of settlements will ... make a two-state solution impossible and could increase the risks of conflicts in the Middle East, including possible war," Sigmar Gabriel said during a news conference at a meeting of G20 foreign ministers in Bonn, Germany.

Germany has taken a more critical stance against ‘Israel' of late, particularly in regards to ‘Israeli' settlement policy.

On Monday, the Haaretz daily reported that Germany cancelled an upcoming summit in the occupied al-Quds/'Jerusalem' between the Zionist and German governments due to German Chancellor's Angela Merkel's unhappiness with a law passed in the Knesset last week legalizing outpost settlements built on private Palestinian land, as well as the announcement of some 6,000 new homes in the West Bank and East occupied al-quds since the inauguration of US President Donald Trump in January.

The cancellation of the summit followed unusually harsh criticism issued by Germany last week after the so-called Regulation Law was passed.

On Thursday Gabriel also singled out the Regulation Law as being particularly problematic in Germany's eyes during the news conference. Merkel has not publicly commented on the law.
