A draft United Nations Security Council resolution condemns Israelâ€™s 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 â€śstresses the illegality of the annexation of any partâ€ť of the occupied Palestinian territories and â€ścondemns recent statements calling for annexation by Israelâ€ť of these territories.
The draft â€śstrongly regretsâ€ť that the Trump plan â€śbreaches international lawâ€ť and UN resolutions.
The deal also â€śundermines the inalienable rights and national aspirations of the Palestinian people, including [the rights] to self-determination and independence,â€ť the draft says.
The resolution stresses the need for an acceleration of international and regional efforts to launch â€ścredible negotiations on all final status issues in the Middle East peace process without exception.â€ť
