Press release on US Secretary of State’s remarks on Israeli settlements.

19 November, 19

The remarks made by the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that the Israeli occupation's West Bank settlements do not violate the international law are an abhorrent violation to every single article in the International Law and International Humanitarian Law.

Such statements highlight that the US administration is involved in attacking Palestinian rights.

We think that settlements are a crime against humanity. The Israeli occupation, indeed, has stolen the land of Palestine, after forcing out the indigenous people and helped settlers who migrated from around the globe to settle in Palestine.

The Israeli settlements are illegal, and the Palestinians will continue struggling against the Israeli occupation until they return to their hometowns and villages from which they were forced out in 1948.
