Syria strongly condemned the expansion settlement by the Israeli occupation in the West Bank.

Syria condemned in the strongest terms the approval of the so-called mini-ministerial council of Israeli entity to legalize the establishment of five settlements in the West Bank and give the green light to establish thousands of settlement units in existing settlements, in addition to other punitive measures imposed on the Palestinians, Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said in a statement Tuesday.

The ministry added that the occupation entity proves day after day that it does not attach importance to the International law, disregards the relevant Security council resolutions and continues to commit genocide against the Palestinian people in Gaza strip for nine months, claiming the lives of more than 37 thousand martyrs, mostly children and women, in addition to tens of thousands of injured.

The ministry confirmed that the Israeli occupation’s genocide against the Palestinians and its settlement construction polic
ies would not have been possible without the political and military support provided by the United States.

Syria renewed its call for the UN and Security Council to assume their responsibilities to stop the Zionist entity’ crimes, put an end to all forms of occupation and settlement, and provide protection for the Palestinian people and their inalienable rights.
