Statement regarding Israeli decision to confiscate privately owned Palestinian land

The Government condemns the Knesset decision yesterday to illegally confiscate privately owned Palestinian land. The decision is a flagrant violation under international law and Security Council resolution 2334, and raises serious doubts about Israel’s willingness to reach a two-state solution. If the decision is implemented, it will seriously undermine the two-state solution. The UN, the EU and the Quartet (the UN, the EU, the United States and Russia) have repeatedly called on Israel to abandon its settlement policy and promote a meaningful peace process.
