Egypt condemned on Wednesday Israel‘s approval to build new settlement units in Jabal Abu Ghneim in the occupied East Jerusalem.

“This constitutes a grave violation of international law and UN resolutions,” Egyptian foreign ministry said in a statement.

According to the statement, the ministry affirmed that the continued Israeli settlement policies in the occupied Palestinian territories undermine chances for the two-state solution.

Such plans also obstruct efforts aimed at reviving the negotiation process with a view to reaching a comprehensive and just settlement of the Palestinian cause, in addition to posing a threat to regional security and stability, the statement added.
