Statement by the Spokesperson on Israel's new announcement of settlement tenders
Today's announcements of settlement tenders, if implemented, will further undermine the viability of the two-State solution; they are illegal in international law and constitute an obstacle to peace.
Israel should reverse these decisions, thereby putting an end to settlement expansion.
The decisions risk inflaming the very tense situation on the ground.
All sides need to exercise maximum restraint and avoid taking any decision that could exacerbate tensions.
