Egyptian FM critical of Israel’s moves to seize territory

The Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement on January 20, branding and condemning Israel’s moves to seize territory as the blatant violation of the international law on humanitarianism.

The statement came as Israel attempts to forcibly dishouse Palestinian residents in an area on the outskirts of East Al-Quds.

It stressed that Israel’s unilateral moves, including the ones to expand Jewish settlements and force out local residents, would further aggravate the situation in the Palestinian territory it has occupied and undermine the efforts to achieve comprehensive and just regional peace.
