LONDON, October 30. /TASS/. Israel must stop the construction of settlements on the West Bank, the UN Human Rights Committee said on Thursday.
The Committee experts urged Israel to stop the confiscation of lands, to withdraw Jewish settlers from the seized territories and take measures to prevent violence towards Palestinians, Reuters reported.
Committee chairman Nigel Rodley told Reuters Television: “I did indicate that the settlements are at the heart of many problems that are faced, including alleged violations of the right to life and freedom of movement and so on.
On Monday local media reported that Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has announced plans to construct 1,060 new housing units in the Palestinian territories on the West Bank of the Jordan River.
Russia is especially concerned about the construction projects in East Jerusalem and is strongly urging Israel to abandon plans to proceed with the construction of settlements as “any ill-thought-out unilateral actions there may have far-reaching consequences,” the Foreign Ministry’s official spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Wednesday.
