No: 155, 1 June 2019, Press Release Regarding Israel's Illegal Settlement Activities In Occupied East Jerusalem

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 01.06.2019

Israel's continuation of its illegal settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territories even during the holy month of Ramadan is the latest example of its inhumane approach.

Israel continued to hijack the rights of the Palestinian people by approving the construction of over 800 additional settlement units in occupied East Jerusalem, which we recognize as the capital of the State of Palestine.

Israel disregards fundamental human rights and international law by its actions. It is now time to put an end to Israel's decisions which aim to erode the status of Jerusalem and to destroy the vision for a two-state solution.

In Palestine, we will never accept history to be rewritten, justice to be exchanged in return for economic interest and dignity and legitimacy to be ignored. We will always continue supporting our Palestinian brothers and sisters and the just cause of Palestine.
