Palestinians urge UN action on Israeli settlements
The Palestinians are demanding urgent action by the UN Security Council and the international community to halt Israel's "illegal settlement campaign."


Palestinian Charge d'Affaires Feda Abdelhady Nasser said in letters Wednesday to the council, the General Assembly and the secretary-general that the intensification of the Israeli campaign is clearly part of "Israel's contemptuous response" to the assembly's overwhelming vote last week to recognize the state of Palestine.
