Haneyya gov’t slams Israel for carrying out largest settlement expansion in WB
The Palestinian government headed by premier Ismail Haneyya on Tuesday strongly denounced Israel for carrying out the largest expropriation of Palestinian land in the West Bank and occupied Jerusalem, saying that these serious Israeli violations are a result of the PA security coordination with Israel.
During its weekly meeting, the government urged the Arab and Muslim countries to assume their responsibilities toward the West Bank and Jerusalem and to take serious steps to stop the schemes of settlement expansion.
The government also discussed in its meeting a number of political, security and administrative issues especially the files of the national dialog and political arrests in the West Bank and the issue of the Free Gaza boat hijacked by Israel.
It stressed that closing the file of political arrests is one of the core issues that reflects the seriousness of Palestinian parties towards the national dialog and its success, adding that this file, if not closed, would remain a constant tension factor.
The government warned that there is a trend in the West Bank seeking to sabotage the Egyptian and Arab efforts made to achieve the inter-Palestinian reconciliation through fabricating lies that do not fool a little Palestinian child, but only serve the Israeli occupation’s goals.
