France and Germany condemn Israeli building plans in Jerusalem

France and Germany both condemned Israel, on Friday, following Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s announcement of new construction in Jerusalem.

“We are deeply concerned about the Israeli announcement to build 5,000 housing units in Israeli settlements in occupied East Jerusalem. This would further separate occupied East Jerusalem from the West Bank and undermine possibility of a Palestinian state,” the German Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
