Egypt condemns Israeli plans to build hundreds of settlement units in the occupied territories

CAIRO, Egypt today condemned Israeli plans to build 780 new housing units in its illegal settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories, describing the government decision as a new violation of international law and United Nations resolutions.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmad Hafiz said in a statement that his country reaffirms its opposition to Israeli settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territories, including in East Jerusalem, and that these activities should come to a total halt.
Hafiz said Egypt is concerned that these activities would undermine the possibility of achieving the two-state solution, as well as efforts exerted to revive the peace process and resumption of negotiations between the Palestinians and Israel.
