EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell stated the fresh Israeli settlement construction project would be "deeply detrimental" to the so-called two-state solution, calling on Tel Aviv to reconsider its plan.

RNA - "Settlements are illegal under international law. The EU will not recognize any changes to the pre-1967 borders, including with regard to Jerusalem, other than those agreed by the parties," he said on Saturday, according to presstv. 

On Thursday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that 3,000 settler units would be built in East al-Quds' Givat HaMatos area in addition to another 2,200 in the nearby Har Homa neighborhood.

In recent years, Israel has stepped up its settlement construction activities in the occupied territories in defiance of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334, which pronounced settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem al-Quds "a flagrant violation under international law".
