Israel Refuses to Negotiate with Palestinian Government 'Dependent on Hamas'

"All settlement activity is illegal under global law, and it undermines the viability of the two-state solution and the prospect for a lasting peace", the body said.

On Wednesday, the committee approved an additional 1,323 units across the West Bank, at various stages in the permitting process, including units in Amichai, a settlement planned for the evacuees of the illegally built outpost of Amona which was demolished in February 2017.

The approvals are part of almost 4,000 settler home plans to be advanced in the occupied West Bank under a push to greatly boost settlement growth, an Israeli official has said.

"This would be the first plan for settlers in Hebron since 2002, when approximately 10 housing units were built in Tel Rumeida under the excuse of security need", the group said in a press release.

In a response to the plans for settlement homes advanced on Tuesday, the European Union called on Israel to reconsider.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the north of West Bank, told WAFA that settlers stole the olive harvest of a farmer in the village of al-Janiya, west of Ramallah, and others stole the olive harvest of a farmer from al-Sawiya near Nablus.

Construction in Givat Hamatos would "severely jeopardise the contiguity and viability of a future Palestinian state", the European Union said, adding that it would continue work with worldwide and regional partners to try to restart dialogue.

Israel has said it would limit settlement construction to keep the Trump administration happy while it formulates a peace initiative. These principles include a two-state solution, which Hamas rejects outright. Also this week, Israel published a tender for 296 homes there.

Israel also reportedly detained 14 Palestinians in overnight raids across the West Bank, according to Palestinian news agency Ma'an.

Prominent members of Netanyahu's coalition openly oppose the idea of a Palestinian state and advocate annexing most of the West Bank.
