Israel’s escalated settlement activities in Palestinian territories is part of its annexation plan

RAMALLAH, Thursday, March 19, 2020 (WAFA) – Israel’s escalated settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territories is part and parcel of its annexation plan, today said Saeb Erekat, secretary general of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).

“This is not an isolated event, but is taking place in the context of an Israeli annexation plan presented as a US peace initiative which aims at normalizing crimes under international law, including annexation and Apartheid, while perpetuating the denial of the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people,” he said.

“The ignorance and arrogance of the US Middle East Team has allowed for those figures to continue growing as their ideological blindness continues to represent a declared threat to a rules-based world order,” added the PLO official.

“The international community has the responsibility to act, including by imposing sanctions, in order to save the prospects of a just and lasting peace based on international law and relevant UN resolutions.”
