• Zionist regime's illegal settlement expansion undermine peace: Arab League chief

The Arab League chief has censured Zionist entity’s plan to build new illegal settler units in occupied al-Quds, saying such land grab policies, which defy UN resolution, undermine peace.

The East Jerusalem municipality issued permits on Wednesday to add 176 units in Nof Zion illegal settlement, surrounded by the Palestinian district of Jabal Mukaber.

Responding to the move, Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Aboul Gheit said during a press conference on Thursday that the Tel Aviv regime had to choose between settlement expansion and peace.

He said the planned settlements were in breach of the United Nations Security Council 2334, which calls on the illegal Zionist entity to “immediately and completely cease all illegal settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territories, including al-Quds.
