Jordan’s Foreign Ministry blasts Israel’s plan to build 1,000 new settlement homes in the Eli settlement near where a deadly shooting attack took place yesterday.

Amman also slams settler reprisal rampages in Palestinian villages during which at least one Palestinian was killed.

Jordan calls on the international community to intervene in order to provide Palestinians protection and warns Israel against further violations of international law that risk burying the two-state solution for good.
