ISRAELI VIOLATIONS OF THE ROAD MAP 1 OCTOBER – 31 DECEMBER 2010
During the fourth quarter of 2010, Israel continued to violate its obligations under Phase 1 of the Road Map. Following the end of Israel’s 10-month so-called ‘moratorium’ on 26 September 2010, there was an intensification of settlement activity, particularly construction starts, issuance of building permits and planning in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. In addition to being illegal under international law, such Israeli violations continue to undermine the very possibility of the two-state solution and international efforts led by the United States to create an environment conducive to the resumption of a credible and viable peace process.
