United Nations chief Ban Ki-moon and the UN Security Council, excluding the US, all condemned Israel on Wednesday for plans to construct settlements beyond the Green Line.

The UNSC was unable to agree on an official condemnation because of opposition by the US.

Israeli ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor attacked the international condemnation. "The construction is taking place in areas that will remain in Israel under any future peace deal," he said.
