The British government has lashed out at Israel for its decision to grab a large swathe of land inside the West Bank.
Hammond made the statement following Tel Aviv’s announcement of new land grabs in the occupied West Bank. Earlier, the US state department slammed the move as Quote counterproductive to peace efforts. Palestinians also called for international action against Tel Aviv. On Sunday, the Israeli military said four-hundred hectares of land in the southern city of Bethlehem will be seized. Israel has seized tens of thousands of hectares of Palestinian land since 1967.
