Israeli construction in West Bank derails peace process - Moscow

Israeli construction in West Bank derails peace process - Moscow

Moscow, which is a strong advocate of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, has repeatedly called for the beginning of direct peace talks in order to "find a solution acceptable to all and based on the well-known United Nations decisions".

Following this decision, the European Union called on Israel on Thursday, to reconsider its plans to build new homes in the West Bank, recalling that any settlement activity is "illegal" and likely to undermine the viability of the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

"The construction of settlements in occupied territory is unquestionably illegal under global law".

He said peace talks are the "only way to achieve an independent Palestinian state, living side-by-side in peace and security with Israel". Indeed, his just trying to mediate between Israelis and Palestinians when Trump is so strongly supportive of Israel may bolster Russia's image as a responsible power and America's as an irresponsible one. Israeli jurisdiction and ownership of Jerusalem, however, is not recognised by the global community.

Colts' Brian Schottenheimer expected to be named Seahawks OC
This past season, Seattle ranked 15th in total offense, with quarterback Russell Wilson leading the team in passing and rushing. The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport also reported that a contract between Schottenheimer and the Seahawks is "expected to get done".

Israel occupied East Jerusalem at the end of the 1967 war with Syria, Egypt and Jordan; the western half of the holy city had been captured in the 1948 Arab-Israeli war. Last August, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed his country would continue building and developing settlements in the West Bank. According to the administration, additional Israel's construction projects on the Palestinian territories might be agreed upon in the near future.

Meanwhile, another Palestinian teenager, identified as Ali Omar Kino, 16, was pronounced dead shortly after arriving to the Nablus Hospital, after being shot by Israeli forces during clashes that erupted in the Tel and Iraq Burin villages of southern Nablus in the northern West Bank.

"The government is attempting to destroy the possibility of a two-state solution and the prospects of peace", Peace Now NGO said.
