AFP , Thursday 30 Jun 2016

A much-awaited report by the diplomatic quartet supporting the Middle East process demands that Israel take urgent steps to halt the expansion of settlements in Palestinian territories, the UN envoy said Thursday.

Nickolay Mladenov told the Security Council that ongoing Israeli construction on the West Bank was one of three "negative trends" that must be quickly reversed to keep the hope of an Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement alive.
