These demolitions, together with plans for new illegal Israeli settlement construction for in the same area, exacerbate threats to the viability of the two-state solution and further undermine prospects for a lasting peace, according to the statement.

In line with our long-standing position on Israel’s settlement policy, illegal under international law, and actions taken in that context, such as forced transfers, evictions, demolitions and confiscations of homes, the EU expects the Israeli authorities to reverse these decisions and fully meet its obligations as an occupying power under international humanitarian law', the EU said
