White House: Settlement building isolates Israel internationally and undermines the possibility of a two-state solution

Settlement building isolates Israel internationally and undermines the possibility of a two-state solution, the White House charged in response to the Israel Lands Authority’s issuance of tenders for 450 homes in the West Bank on Friday.

“We have deep concerns about these highly contentious settlement construction announcements.

They will have detrimental impacts on the ground, inflame already heightened tensions with the Palestinians and further isolate the Israelis internationally,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters in Washington.
