Netanyahu: I will not allow the Jewish settlements to be abolished
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will never allow Jewish settlements to be abolished in the occupied area of ​​the West Bank. The Israeli government boss said this on a ceremony ceremony in the Jewish settlement of Barkan in the north of Palestinian territory.

"Judea and Samaria (the biblical names for the area now known as the West Bank) record great advances in development ... We have come back all the time ... No interference of settlements in Israel will happen," Netanyahu said.

The Israeli prime minister's speech has earned a loud criticism from Palestinians who have called on US administration President Donald Trump to condemn him. The UN Secretary General António Guterres, who visited Palestinian Ramallah on Tuesday, met with Netanyahu personally on Monday. Guterres reiterated that the international community is opposed to the construction of Israeli settlements and stressed that "a two-state solution that would end the occupation and suffering of the Palestinians ... is the only way to ensure peace."

There are more than a hundred Jewish settlements in the West Bank. In the past 20 years, the United States has repeatedly called for some of these settlements to be vacated, allowing Israel to form a separate Palestinian state alongside Israel. Netanyahu and his nationalist evacuees disagree with evacuation.

The uncompromising attitude of the Israeli prime minister seems to have strengthened the election victory of Donald Trump. While many former US presidents were supporters of a two-state solution, Trump has not yet resolved such a solution and surrounded advisors who support village-building, including his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is in charge of the peace process in the Middle East and the region Visited last week.

The West Bank and East Jerusalem occupied Israel during the war in 1967. These territories, together with the Gaza Strip, form the future Palestinian state that the Palestinians are longing for.

The settlements in the Occupied Territories are considered illegal by the Palestinians and completely contradict the possibility of creating two states. The same opinion is also taken up by a significant part of the international community. East Jerusalem and the West Bank are currently home to 600,000 Israeli Jews.
