France ‘concerned’ over West Bank land appropriation

France says it is “extremely concerned” by Israel’s move to appropriate some 230 hectares of Palestinian land in the Jordan Valley south of Jericho.

“France is extremely concerned by the decision of Israeli authorities to appropriate for Israeli settlements … territory in the West Bank,” French Foreign Ministry spokesman Romain Nadal says, according to Reuters.

The move, announced Tuesday, has drawn criticism from Palestinians and the international community.
