A draft United Nations Security Council resolution condemns Israelâs plan to annex the settlements it has built illegally on occupied Palestinian territories, in a rebuke of a US-devised “peace plan” that endorses the Israeli land theft of Palestinian-owned property.
The draft, which was reported on by Reuters, on Tuesday, has been drawn up by Palestinians and circulated to council members by Tunisia and Indonesia, the Palestine News Network reported.
The resolution âstresses the illegality of the annexation of any partâ of the occupied Palestinian territories and âcondemns recent statements calling for annexation by Israelâ of these territories.
The draft âstrongly regretsâ that the Trump plan âbreaches international lawâ and UN resolutions.
The deal also âundermines the inalienable rights and national aspirations of the Palestinian people, including [the rights] to self-determination and independence,â the draft says.
The resolution stresses the need for an acceleration of international and regional efforts to launch âcredible negotiations on all final status issues in the Middle East peace process without exception.â
