An internal European Union report says that a range of Israeli actions in Area C of the West Bank is undermining the the area's Palestinian population, thereby contributing to the "closing [of] the window" for reaching a two-state solution, according to a report in the London-based The Independent Thursday.

Saying that the Jewish population in Area C is increasing due to settlement activities and that the Palestinian population is decreasing due to various bureaucratic and security measures, the document reportedly warns that "if current trends are not stopped and reversed, the establishment of a viable Palestinian state within pre-1967 borders seem more remote than ever," the Independent reported.
