Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman on Saturday rejected Europe's condemnation of Israel's decision to build some 797 housing units in Gilo, south of Jerusalem.

Liberman stated: "These automatic condemnations are indicative of a lack of a basic understanding of the reality in the region," Israel Radio reported.

On Friday, European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said she "deeply regrets" Israel's decision.
