Malta condemns Israel's decision to expropriate 1000 acres of Palestinian land

Article By: news

Malta condemns the decision by Israel to expropriate approximately 1000 acres of Palestinian land in the Etzion block close to Bethlehem in the West Bank for new settlement expansion.

Malta reiterates the EU’s and its longstanding position that settlements are illegal under international law and are not conducive to the realisation of the two-State solution. 

In the wake of the ceasefire in Gaza, the Government of Malta is of the view that any action that could undermine the prospect of constructive negotiations should be avoided, and in this regard, urges the Government of Israel to reconsider this decision.
