Responding to the Israeli decision to build 900 new units in Ramat Shlomo illegal Israeli colony in occupied Jerusalem, Palestinian presidency spokesperson, Nabil Abu Rodeina, said Israel is ongoing with its crimes and violations against the Palestinian people.Abu Rodeina said the Palestinian legitimate demands for peace are simple and clear; Israel must officially accept the two-state solution, must end its colonial activities, and end its ongoing violations against the Palestinian people, their lands and holy sites.

In a press release, Abu Rodeina stated that Palestine would continue its efforts to gain membership in various international organizations and treaties, to protect the national interests, and struggle, of the Palestinian people.

He added that the newly formed Israeli government of Benjamin Netanyahu is a right-wing extremist government that continues Israel illegal policies of constructing and expanding colonies in occupied Palestine.

“The Palestinian leadership is consulting Arab leaders to submit another resolution to the UN Secretary Council demanding an end to Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestine,” the official said, “We are also continuing our preparations to submit the Israeli violations file to the International Criminal Court.”
