Spain Thursday condemned Israel’s approval of the construction of 1,100 new Jewish settler units across the West Bank.
“The government calls on the Israeli authorities to put an end to the construction of settlements as it contravenes International Law and hinders the viability of the two-state solution for the Israel-Palestine conflict,” said the Spanish Foreign Ministry in a press statement.
