Israel resumes building of settlements on the West Bank despite US denouncement | DW News

Israel has defied its US ally by giving the go-ahead for 3,000 new settler homes in the occupied West Bank. It’s the first construction to be approved by the new Israeli coalition, that some had hoped would move away from the expansion policies of the previous government. The latest construction plans have been strongly criticized by the Biden administration.

In a policy shift from the previous US presidential administration, the White House on Tuesday said it was “deeply concerned” about Israel’s continued building of settlements on the West Bank. The administration under President Joe Biden had repeatedly warned Israel to halt its building on land in the occupied Palestinian territories. This has marked a radical shift to the stance taken by the Trump administration. “We strongly oppose the expansion of settlements, which is completely inconsistent with efforts to lower tensions and to ensure calm, and it damages the prospects for a two-state solution,” State Department spokesperson Ned Price said.
