Press briefing note on Israel/oPT
Spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights: Rupert Colville
Date: 19 November 2019
Israel / oPT
As part of the UN Secretariat, we continue to follow the longstanding position of the United Nations that the Israeli settlements are in breach of international law.
A change in the policy position of one State does not modify existing international law, nor its interpretation by the International Court of Justice and the Security Council.
