"In line with the EU’s long-standing position, we expect the Israeli authorities to immediately halt the ongoing demolitions," said a spokesperson for the European Union External Action Service.

"Israel’s settlement policy, including actions taken in that context, such as forced transfers, evictions, demolitions and confiscations of homes, is illegal under international law," added the statement.
The spokesperson warned that "the continuation of this policy undermines the viability of the two-state solution and the prospect for a lasting peace and seriously jeopardizes the possibility of Jerusalem serving as the future capital of both States."
