Turkey condemns the building of 1100 new housing units in O. Jerusalem

ANKARA, (PIC)-- Turkish foreign ministry has expressed concern at the Israeli government’s endorsement of the building of 1100 new housing units in occupied Jerusalem.
The ministry’s statement on Saturday said that the expansion of the Givat Hamatos settlement was a new addition to the illegal Israeli activity in occupied Palestinian land.
It recalled that Turkey had condemned, alongside the world community, the Israeli plan to establish new housing units in Givat Hamatos last October, and said that achieving peace was not one of Israel’s goals.
The statement renewed Ankara’s rejection of the incessant Israeli settlement activity in blatant violation of the international law, charging that Israel had destroyed peace foundations with such practices.
