Russia: Israeli settlements reduce chances for peace

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas slams Donald Trump's Mideast peace plan calls it'slap on face

Abbas said Nothing is more important than Jerusalem

Israeli forces have always been criticized for their use of excessive force against Palestinian protesters who did not pose a grave threat to soldiers at their time of death, and who could have been suppressed or detained in a non-lethal manner.

A Palestinian teen from the Gaza Strip was killed east of the Burij refugee camp after a live round was sacked into his chest, the Wafa news agency quoted medical sources as saying.

"Given the clear and absolute harm caused to the rights of Palestinian landowners in the occupied territories, it was expected that the Supreme Court should have issued an order nisi much more quickly in this petition".

Following the announcement of the new settlements, the Israeli anti-settlement group Peace Now accused the Israeli Government of "trying to destroy the possibility of a two-state solution and the prospect of peace by building more and more in the settlements".

The Israeli forces justified the killing by accusing Qeeno of being the main instigator of attacks that saw Palestinian youths hurling rocks at the soldiers.

Soldiers manning a checkpoint outside the village opened fire without warning, said Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors illegal Israeli settlement activities in the northern West Bank.

In the West Bank village of Iraq Burin, south of Nablus, a 16-year-old boy died in hospital after he was shot by Israeli troops as Palestinians pelted them with stones.

In her decision, Israeli Supreme Court Chief Justice Esther Hayut called on the state to explain "Why should it not be determined that the Settlement Regularization Law is invalid in all areas of the West Bank, and that [Israel's West Bank military commander] is therefore forbidden to act in accordance with the law... and why should it not be determined that the Settlement Regularization Law is null and void since it is unconstitutional".

Israeli settlements violate the Fourth Geneva Convention, which states that an occupying power can not transfer its population into the territory it occupies.

In a unilateral decision, on December 6, U.S. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital by announcing the relocation of the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

It was unclear now how a deal might emerge, though both sides insist the clock is ticking. Some Democrats have threatened to withhold support unless an immigration pact is forged.

The country captured the West Bank and east Jerusalem in the 1967 war and has since built dozens of settlements there.

The Jerusalem and Ramallah EU missions expressed "deep concern regarding the circumstances of the recent arrests of two Palestinian minors, Ahed Tamimi and Fawzi Muhammad al-Juneidi", a statement read.

Israel's occupation of East Jerusalem effectively put the entire city under de facto Israeli control.

The Israeli occupation of the West Bank is viewed as illegal under worldwide law and the UN Security Council regards the country as an occupying power.
