Israeli control over settlements entrenches occupation:Palestinian gov’t

Ramallah, The Palestinian Authority (PA) renders Israel’s attempts to control settlements a bid to entrench occupation in the West Bank and to impose fresh restrictions.

The Palestinian Authority Spokesperson, Yousef Al-Mahmoud, said on Sunday “Israel should clear off its settlements from our territories and such a step will increase Tel Aviv’s grasping over the occupied Palestinian soil “.

Israel, the official underlined, continues its plans to impose more control over the Palestinian territories in an attempt to hamper possibility of any future Palestinian state, with East Jerusalem as its capital on pre-1967 borders, and added Israel aims at undermining the global vision for the two-state solution, marred by the U.S. administration’s decision to declare Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
