Jerusalem24 – Palestinian Presidency today warned that all Israeli unilateral actions are designed to torpedo international efforts to achieve peace in the Middle East.
Presidential Spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh condemned in a press statement the Israeli attacks that continue unabated against Palestinian people, stressing that they will neither bring peace nor stability to anyone, as Israel seeks through such measures to destroy the internationally supported two-state solution and eliminate any prospects for peace through negotiations based on international law and UN resolutions.
“The Israeli policies of house demolitions and ongoing colonial settlement activities are unilateral actions aimed at torpedoing any international effort to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict based on international legitimacy decisions,” he stressed.
“We call on the International Quartet, the UN Security Council and the US administration, which declared its rejection of unilateral actions and support for the two-state solution, to pressure the Israeli government to stop these serious violations of all international legitimacy resolutions and international law,” he added.
He made this statement with reference to the Israeli courts’ decision green-lighting the demolition of 100 Palestinian homes in the Jerusalem neighborhood of al-Bustan; confiscation of dozens of Palestinian homes in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, al-Matar neighborhood, the Hebron-city area of al-Baqa’a, and the Hebron-district area of Ayn al-Bayda, demolition of the Kharabeesh community near the village of Nuway’imah in the Jordan Valley, razing Palestinian-owned lands in the Ramallah-district village of Ras Karkar, and uprooting dozens of olive trees in the Nablus-district village of Jaloud.
