Saturday, six European countries expressed their “grave concern” over indiscriminate violence by Israeli Occupation settlers against Palestinian civilians, as reported by the Palestinian news agency WAFA.
This includes the destruction of homes and properties owned by the Palestinian people.
In a joint statement, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain and the United Kingdom said “Those responsible must face full accountability and legal prosecution. All unilateral actions that threaten peace and incitement to violence must cease.”
They also emphasized that just and lasting peace for all is the only desirable solution.
“In this regard, we also reiterate our strong opposition to all unilateral measures that undermine the two-state solution, including expansion of settlements which are illegal under international law,”the statement read.
The six countries called on the Israeli Occupation's government to reverse its recent decision to advance the building of over 7,000 settlement building units in the occupied West Bank and to legalize settlement outposts.
