EU Condemns Gush Etzion Annexation


The European Union (EU) condemned Israel’s intent to annex 4,000 dunam of land in Gush Etzion and called to Israel to take back its decision.

The EU issued a statement in which it said that “The ‘settlements’ are illegal and serve as an obstacle to the peace process and two-state solution. At this most sensitive time, one should avoid any acts that are likely to upend the stability and hurt future negotiations regarding the ceasefire in Gaza.”
