The Labor Party on Friday criticized the government's decision to announce the building of 3,000 units in the West Bank and areas of Jerusalem over the Green Line following the UN vote to recognize Palestine as a non-member observer state.

"There is no objection to Israel's right to build in Jerusalem, but at this time, it is advisable to lower the flames," the party stated.

"Declarations of this nature promote nothing and are liable to hurt Israel's interests in Jerusalem and in the settlement blocs," the statement added.
