No: 293, 15 November 2020, Press Release Regarding Israel's Illegal Settlement Activities In The Palestinian Territories

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 15.11.2020

Israel, which recently approved the construction of 108 additional illegal settlements in East Jerusalem, once again demonstrated that it continues to violate international law and infringe upon the rights of the Palestinian people through its decision on the construction of a new illegal settlement area consisting of 1257 housing units in East Jerusalem.

It is clear that Israel is trying to prevent the establishment of a contiguous, independent and sovereign State of Palestine by building additional illegal settlements between East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

On this day that we celebrate the thirty-second anniversary of the foundation of the State of Palestine, we remind once again that the Palestinian territories belong to the Palestinian people, and we invite all members of the international community which support the vision of a two-state solution, to stand against Israel's aggressive actions.
