The Israeli occupation government approved a proposal to establish a new settlement, Mevo’ot
Yeriho, currently an outpost in the Jordan Valley. The European Union reiterates that all settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem, are illegal under international law.
The EU called on Israel to end all settlement activity and to dismantle the outposts erected since March 2001, in line with prior obligations.
The EU will continue to monitor the situation closely, including any steps towards possible annexation, and act accordingly. We expect both parties, including any future Israeli government, to act in accordance with international law.
