PNGO demands that the International Community Force Israel to Stop Building Settlements

Israeli Settlements are illegal and a clear violation of the International Humanitarian law and contravene Security Council resolution 2334 adopted December 23, 2016. PNGO condemns Israeli settlements continuous building in the oPt. PNGO also condemns the Israeli announcements made of plans for more than 6,000 settlements on oPt.

 Even though, the Security Council repeated its demand that all Israeli settlements must be stopped, yet Israel continues to ignore the International law as if they are above the law. The number of Israeli Settlers living over the “Green Line,” has increased to an estimated more than 630,000, 210,100 of them in East Jerusalem.

With the expansion of settlements growing rapidly, many believe that the two states solution will be hard if not even impossible to realize, Palestinians are helpless, living under continuous discrimination, harassment by Israeli settlers yet the world is watching quietly. Palestinians are human beings with human rights that include but not limited to right to life, liberty personal security, right to free of movement, right to adequate living standard, political rights and freedom of expression. PNGO calls on the international community to stand united and take immediate and concrete action to force Israel to stop building settlements in the occupied territory.
