PA blasts Israel's 'settlement assault'

The Palestinian Authority (PA) on Tuesday blasted the approval of the construction of 300 housing units in Beit El, in accordance with a promise made by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to residents five years ago.

Nabil Abu Rudeineh, a spokesman for PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas, said that “settlements” are illegal and condemned by the Arabs and the international community, as well as being in violation of United Nations Security Council resolutions, particularly resolution 2334.
