Palestinian presidency condemns Israeli settlement projects

The Palestinian Presidency has strongly condemned the Israeli government’s decision to seize 8,000 dunams of Palestinian land in an effort to hinder the establishment of a Palestinian state. Nabil Abu Rudeineh, spokesperson of the presidency, emphasized that all settlements are “illegitimate” and called for international intervention to stop Israel’s actions.

Abu Rudeineh stated that without a Palestinian state free of settlements, there will be no security or stability in the region. He urged the US government to uphold international law and pressure Israel to halt its “crimes and settlements” to avoid further violence and explosions.

Israeli authorities seized the land in the Jordan Valley area of the West Bank to establish hundreds of settlement units, a move that has been met with widespread condemnation. The establishment of settlements in the West Bank by Israel has long been considered a violation of international law.

The West Bank has been under Israeli occupation since 1967, with over 600,000 Israeli settlers currently residing in the region. The ongoing expansion of settlements has been a major point of contention in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, further complicating efforts to reach a peaceful resolution.
