Palestinian PM calls on EU to confront Israeli illegal settlements, demolition, confiscation

Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah called on the member states of the European Union to confront the construction and expansion of illegal Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territory, which constitutes a threat to the two-state solution.

The prime minister also called on the EU to intervene and stop the demolition and confiscation of Palestinian homes and properties, particularly in Area "C" of the West Bank.

Addressing the launch of the European Joint Strategy in Support of Palestine 2017-2022 in Ramallah on Thursday, Hamdallah said: "I extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to the Irish Seanad, which voted in favor of a bill banning the importation of products from Israeli settlements in the West Bank, paving the way for the first EU state to impose a boycott, and I hope that other European countries will follow suit."

The launch of the plan was attended by EU Representative to Palestine Ralph Tarraf, as well as a number of consuls, ambassadors of EU countries and state officials.
