The Palestinian Authority leadership Monday strongly denounced the Israeli government's decision to build 1,500 housing units in east Jerusalem.
PA is planning to file a complaint against Israel with the UN Security Council
over the new project.
Nabil Abu Rudaineh, spokesman for the PA
president’s office, said the decision was a “blatant challenge” to the
international community and a “disregard for the feelings of the Palestinian
people and Arab nation.”
Abu Rudaineh said that the decision would
further isolate Israel “after the whole world rejected occupation and recognized
the Palestinian state in the 1967 borders.”
