France summons Israel ambassador over settler plan: Embassy

Announcement of plans to build 3,000 new homes in occupied East Jerusalem and West Bank leads France to summon Israeli ambassador

AFP , Monday 3 Dec 2012

France on Monday summoned the Israeli ambassador here to complain about the Jewish state's plans to build new settler homes, the embassy said.

Reports of a decision by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to build 3,000 homes in east Jerusalem and the West Bank emerged Friday when an official source confirmed that it was in retaliation for the Palestinians winning the rank of a UN non-member state a day earlier.
