UN envoy to Israel: Halt house demolitions

E-mail Print PDF

The U.N.'s Mideast envoy said Saturday he was "alarmed" by Israel's decision to resume house demolitions in the West Bank.

Earlier this week, Israel knocked down dozens of shacks in two West Bank villages, leaving dozens of Palestinians homeless. U.N. envoy Robert Serry said Israel agreed in April to halt the demolitions and he urged it to reinstate the moratorium.


TVNL Comment: But the US will support any action by Israel, without regard to breaches of international law.
