RNA - Palestinian Tourism and Antiquities Minister Rula Maayaa said Tuesday that "nobody can legalize the theft of the Palestinian lands", the Daily Star reported.


"I think it is time now for the international community to act concretely to stop the Israelis from these crimes," she said.


The explosive law, which was approved by lawmakers late the previous night, is the latest in a series of pro-settler steps taken by Israel's hard-line government since the election of Donald Trump as US president.


It is expected to trigger international outrage and a flurry of lawsuits against the measure.
