Israel/Palestinian Territories – Confiscation of land in the West Bank

(September 1, 2014)

France condemns the Israeli authorities’ decision to confiscate 400 hectares of land in Bethlehem Governorate (West Bank) for the benefit of the neighbouring settlement of Gvaot, and it calls on those authorities to go back on their decision.

As the French President recalled at the Ambassadors’ Conference, the parties must mobilize as a matter of urgency to return to the path of peace as soon as possible.
