Most of Israel’s largest banks are providing services that help support, maintain, and expand unlawful settlements by financing their construction in the occupied West Bank.

The Arab League has said that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s recent remarks about never leaving settlements show that the Tel Aviv regime does not seek peace.

A newly published report shows that the scale of the Israeli settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territories has increased by almost three times in the first half of 2017, compared to the same period last year.

Israel has appealed to the US to nullify UN Security Council Resolution 2334 which demands a halt to all settlement expansion in the occupied Palestinian territories, a report says.

 Foreign Ministry spokesperson has welcomed UN resolution demanding Israel to stop construction of Jewish settlements in Palestinian territories as a step toward vindication of rights of Palestinians.

More than 70 American intellectuals and academics have circulated an open letter, calling for targeted boycott of Israeli settlements and the products originating from them.

The Zionisti regime has approved nearly $13m in financing for the occupied West Bank settlements of Kiryat Arba and Hebron, according to officials.

Iran’s Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations Gholam Hossein Dehqani, speaking on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), said the UN Security Council’s failure to hold Israel accountable has led to the deteriorating situation in Palestine.
