UN to Israel: stand for peace and rescind new building plans over pre-67 lines

Israel should show it cares about peace by rescinding its decision to advance building plans in the West Bank settlement of Ma’aleh Adumim and Jewish neighborhoods of east Jerusalem, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said on Monday night.

“Settlements are illegal under international law,” Ban’s office said.

It added that Ban “urges the Government of Israel to halt and reverse such decisions in the interest of peace and a just final status agreement.”
