Occupiers Settlement Activities

European Parliament urges end to Israel's settlement activities, occupation

A delegation of the European Parliament (EP) for relations with Palestine has called for an immediate end to Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories as well as the expansion of illegal Israeli settlements and demolition of Palestinian homes.

Denouncing Israeli “occupation policies” in a press statement, the delegation chairwoman, Martina Anderson, said, “The expansion of settlements, demolitions, forcible transfers and evictions must stop immediately,” Palestinian media reported on Saturday.
