The national bureau for defending the land and resisting settlement expansion has warned of the gravity of the green light policy that is pursued by Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu regarding the demolition of Palestinian homes.
In a report released on Saturday, the national bureau stated that Netanyahu gave a green light for the Israeli authorities to demolish more Palestinian homes in towns and villages in Israel, the West Bank and Jerusalem.
Netanyahu’s widespread demolition campaign against Palestinian homes has been launched in reaction to an Israeli court ordering the Jewish settlers of Amona outpost who live illegally on a tract of privately owned Palestinian land in the West Bank to leave the area soon, according to the report.
The report also pointed to recent remarks made by the Israeli transportation minister calling for expanding the borders of Occupied Jerusalem to include settlements surrounding it.
The bureau appealed to the international community and the UN Security Council to deal responsibly with these Israeli steps and calls, in order to salvage the two-state solution and to force Israel to abide by the international law and stop its settlement activities in the Palestinian territories.
