The Jordanian government denounced, Wednesday, the Israeli decision to build additional 1936 units in its illegal colonies in the occupied West Bank.

Ambassador Daifallah al-Fayez, the spokesperson of the Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, said that all of Israel’s colonies are illegal as they also constitute a serious breach of International Law and International Humanitarian Law.

Al-Fayez added that the International Community must act and uphold its responsibilities to stop Israel’s illegal policies, especially the construction and expansion of its colonies.

He also said that these violations are placing more obstacles to the efforts to achieve a comprehensive, just and lasting peace, and called on obliging Israel to implement all related international legitimacy resolutions, including UN Security Council resolution #2334.
