International condemnations over Israel’s declaration of 4,000 dunam in Gush Etzion as state land 11 days ago are not subsiding, as the EU's ambassador to Israel and Australia's Foreign Minister called on Wednesday for Israel to reverse the move.

“We are very concerned about the move in Gus Etzion,” said EU ambassador Lars Faaborg-Andersen at a Jerusalem press briefing. “I delivered the message to Deputy Foreign Minister Tzachi Hanegbi on Monday that this is an alarming development because of the timing.”
