Gaza,(DRAH.ps)-- The Dutch Foreign Ministry on Thursday condemned Israel for demolishing and seizing Palestinian communities in the occupied West Bank.
Israel’s new settlement policy -- accelerating demolition procedure -- worries the Netherlands, the statement reads.
The statement said despite the Dutch government's insistence on bilateral talks or talks via EU, Israel had not changed its settlement policy positively.
Over the years, Israel has demolished hundreds of houses as part of its settlement policy, leaving thousands of Palestinians homeless.
International law views the West Bank and East Jerusalem as "occupied territories" and considers all Jewish settlement construction there as illegal.
