European Union slammed Israel’s new plan

The European Union has slammed Israel's settlement plan of building new houses in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

In a joint statement, Estonia, Ireland, France, Norway and Albania strongly opposed the expansion of settlements and any changes to the pre-1967 borders.

The EU members called on Israel to immediately halt the construction of settlements in the occupied territories, including E1 and Givat Hamatos.
