Jordan condemns Israel’s okay of thousand settlement housing units

AMMAN, The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has condemned the Israeli occupation authorities’ decision to build over 1,000 new illegal settlement units in the E1 settlement bloc, east of occupied Jerusalem.

Jordanian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Deifallah Fayez reiterated Jordan’s rejection of all forms of Israeli settlement construction and expansion, adding that the settlements are a violation of international law and undermine the two-state solution chances.

Fayez stressed the need to immediately halt the Israeli illegal settlement policy, calling on Israel to abide by its obligations as the occupying power.
