AMMAN — State Minister for Media Affairs Mohammad Momani on Thursday condemned the Israeli government’s announcement of 2,500 new settlement units in the occupied Palestinian territories, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Momani, who is also the government’s spokesperson, stressed that Israeli settlement activities are illegal and absolutely rejected as they pose a direct threat to peace and challenge the will of the international community and relevant international resolutions, the minister also emphasised that the entire international community rejects settlements and considers them illegal, in addition to Security Council Resolution 2334, which clearly reflects the international community’s stand on this regard.

Momani also condemned Israeli unilateral measures aimed at changing the status quo in the occupied Palestinian territories, especially the settlement activities, which constitute a systematic undermining of the prospects for peace and a threat to security and stability in the region.
