Israel: the issue of the West Bank building projects funded by the EU

The European Union decided to fund the construction of the 400 homes for Palestinians in the West Bank’s Area C, which according to the Oslo Accords remains under Israeli control until a negotiated final agreement. “The EU’s funding will provide training and expertise, to help the relevant Palestinian Authority ministries to plan and build new infrastructure and enable people to reclaim and rebuild their land there,” Maja Kocijancic, EU Spokesperson.

Very strong the response of the Israeli PM Netanyahu who instructed Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon to move forward with a plan to demolish some 400 Palestinian structures (Times of Israel).
