Last update: 08/02/2017
DOHA, Feb 8 (Bernama) -- Qatar strongly condemned Israel's approval to build thousands of new settlement units in the occupied Palestinian territories, including Jerusalem, Qatar News Agency (QNA) reported.
In a statement Wednesday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that the Israeli Knesset's adoption of settlement legislation law is a flagrant violation of international resolutions and a blatant attack on the right of the Palestinian people.
The Foreign Ministry said that the continuation of Israeli violations would undermine international efforts to implement the two-state solution.
The statement called on the international community to take the necessary measures to enforce the Security Council resolutions and compel Israel to halt its settlement policy in the occupied Palestinian territories.
