Egypt: Israel's State Land Designation An Obstacle to Peace

Egypt on Monday denounced Israel’s plans to to declare 4,000 dunams (988 acres) of land in Judea, mostly in Gush Etzion, as state land, AFP reported.

Cairo said the move violates international law and is an obstacle to efforts for a lasting Palestinian-Israeli peace agreement.
