Eight European Union nations are underlining their opposition to the Zionist entity’s planned demolition of the Palestinian village of Khan al-Ahmar and are urging Tel Aviv to reconsider the decision.
The statement was read by Dutch Ambassador Karel Van Oosterom outside the UN Security Council on Thursday. It rebuked the Israeli High Court’s Sept. 5 decision to demolish the desert community.
The eight countries are France, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany and Italy. They say in the statement that they “will not give up on a negotiated two-state solution with Jerusalem as a capital of both Israel and a new Palestinian state.”
That was an implicit slap at US President Donald Trump’s declaration in December that contested Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as the capital of the Israeli regime.
