USA: Washington opposes the construction of new Israeli homes in the occupied West Bank

The United States today expressed “grave concern” over Israel’s announcement to build more than 1,300 new homes in Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank.

“We are deeply concerned about the Israeli government’s plan,” State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters.

“We strongly oppose settlement expansion, which is completely contrary to efforts to reduce tension and ensure calm, and which undermines the prospects for a two-state solution” between Israel and Palestine, he added.

“The attempt to retroactively legalize illegal settlements is unacceptable”

“We also believe that any attempt to retroactively legalize illegal settlements is unacceptable,” he continued, asserting that senior US officials conveyed these positions “directly” to their Israeli counterparts.

This is one of the strongest positions the United States has taken on Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territories since President Joe Biden took office in January.

His predecessor, Donald Trump, had adopted a policy of greater understanding. The Trump administration’s Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, even tweaked the US doctrine in 2019, saying that Washington no longer considered settlements to be contrary to international law, a decision celebrated by Israel but denounced by the Palestinians.
