The European Union (EU) Spokesperson condemned Saturday the house demolitions in Shuafat Palestinian refugee camp in East Jerusalem.

“Last week, the Israeli authorities demolished some 20 Palestinian commercial structures in the Shuafat Palestinian refugee camp in East

Jerusalem. The demolition started several weeks after the Jerusalem municipality decided to promote a plan to build 800 housing units in the Israeli settlements of Ramat Shlomo in East Jerusalem.

“The European Union strongly opposes the policy of Israeli settlements, which is illegal under international law, and the actions taken in this regard. The European Union expects the Israeli authorities to reconsider and revoke these decisions. The settlement bloc in East Jerusalem continues to jeopardize the feasibility of a two-state solution,” the EU’s statement read.
