Palestinian envoy: New Israeli settlements a provocation

Published: 12.01.12, 07:21 / Israel News

The Palestinian UN envoy accused Israel on Friday of carrying out "an immediate provocation" following the UN's recognition of the state of Palestine by announcing the expansion of settlements which he denounced as illegal.


Israel accused the Palestinians of bypassing direct negotiations by seeking recognition as a state, and less than 24 hours after the vote the government approved the construction of 3,000 homes in Jewish settlements beyond the Green Line. "They are trying to provoke us to react – I don't know in which way," Riyad Mansour told the General Assembly. (AP)
