Israel must face international action over a major expansion of settlement building announced Tuesday following US President Donald Trump's inauguration, a top Palestinian official said.

"The international community must hold Israel accountable immediately for what it is doing," Palestine Liberation Organisation secretary general Saeb Erekat told AFP.

He added that Israel had been emboldened by "what they consider encouragement by American President Donald Trump."
