Abu Leila: The Israeli government continues its plans to isolate the city of Jerusalem from its surroundings
September 8, 2017

Deputy Secretary General of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, MP Qais Abdel-Kareem, said that what the Israeli government is practicing on the ground, the latest of which was the tender for the construction of 4000 settlement units in the vicinity of occupied Jerusalem, comes in the context of attempts of occupation to create facts on the ground that pave the way for the annexation of Palestinian Bank, including the occupied Jerusalem.

Abu Leila said in a press statement on Wednesday: "The construction of thousands of new settlement units on the hills of Jerusalem is a blatant violation that reveals the true aims and intentions of the occupation government, which is working all the time, to Judaize the occupied land and to achieve its colonial plans".

He also added that: "The occupation government continues its efforts to achieve its plans to isolate the city of Jerusalem from its surroundings and expand the boundaries of what it calls 'Greater Jerusalem', where this new settlement project coincides with the demolitions and deportations which have been practiced in the holy city".

MP Abu Leila pointed out that these decisions reveal the futility of the policy that is based on waiting for the development of US position towards what is happening and confirm its complete bias to the Israeli position.

He continued by saying: "We are asked to continue to use all the available powerful weapons of the factions and Executive Committee of PLO, including heading to the International Criminal Court and escalating the mass movement against settlement and Judaization of Jerusalem. We must depend on this achievement and develop it to thwart all Israeli plans, to end the occupation and achieve the independence".

MP Abu Leila called on the international community to judge the Israeli government for its defiance of the resolutions of international legitimacy, which affirmed the principle of two-state solution and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the borders of June 4th, 1967.
