The Europ-ean Un-ion formally conde-mned the demoli-tion of ille-gal Ar-ab apartment buildings near Isr-ael’s secu-rity barrier separating Jeru-salem from Pal-esti-nian Auth-ority-controlled areas, and demanded Isr-ael halt its enfor-cement of demo-lition orders. In a statement issued Monday afternoon, the Euro-pean Uni-on’s foreign affairs department said the demoli-tions undermine the “viability of the t-wo-sta-te solu-tion”. “Isr-aeli authorities have proceeded with the demo-lition of 10 Palest-inian buildings, containing some 70 apartments, in W-adi al Hu–mmus, part of Sur Ba-her neighbou-rhood in occu-pied East Jeru-salem. The majority of the buildings are located in Area A and B of the W-est Bank where, according to the O-slo Ac-cords, all civil issues are under the jurisdiction of the Palesti-nian Auth-ority,” the EU said. “Isra-el’s settle-ment policy, including actions taken in that context, such as forced transfers, evic-tions, demo-litions and confis-cat-ions of homes, is ille-gal under interna-tional law. In line with the EU’s long-standing position, we expect the Isr-aeli authorities to immediately halt the ongoing demol-itions.” “The continuation of this policy undermines the viability of the t-wo-sta-te solution and the prospect for a lasting peace and seriously jeopardizes the possibility of Jeru-salem serving as the future capital of both States.” Earlier on Monday, Public Security Minister, Gi-lad Er-dan (Lik-ud) defended the dem-olition of illegal Ar-ab apartment buildings on the southeastern fringe of Jeru-salem Monday morning, saying the structures were built too close to the security barrier, and could be used as a haven for terr-orists.
