‘Israel’ Advanced Plans for 22,000 Settler Units in West Bank in 3 Years
By Staff, Agencies
The United Nations said the ‘Israeli’ occupation regime advanced or approved plans for more than 22,000 settler units in the occupied West Bank and East al-Quds in the course of just three years since the UN Security Council adopted a resolution slamming settlements on Palestinian lands.
UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov said Tel Aviv has further issued tenders for around 8,000 settler units since late 2016.
On December 23, 2016, the Security Council adopted its Resolution 2334, which concerns the Zionist settlements in “Palestinian territories occupied since 1967”. It called on the occupying regime to immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territories, including East al-Quds.
The resolution also declared that the ‘Israeli’ settlements have “no legal validity.”
Mladenov also said the Tel Aviv regime had taken no steps to “cease all settlement activities” and its demolitions and seizures of Palestinian-owned structures also continued.
