EU condemns new Israeli plans to expand Jewish settlements

BRUSSELS, The European Union (EU) Thursday slammed Israeli advanced plans for over two thousand settlement units across the West Bank.

“The European Union’s position on Israeli settlement construction and related activities is clear and remains unchanged: all settlement activity is illegal under international law,” said Maja Kocijancic, spokesperson for EU High Representative Federica Mogherini, in a statement.

It undermines the viability of the two-state solution and the prospects for a lasting peace, she added.
