Jordan warns against eviction of Palestinians in South Hebron Hills area

The Jordanian Foreign Ministry has issued a warning against a planned eviction of 1,300 Palestinians living in eight villages in the South Hebron Hills, as well as plans to approve the construction of nearly 4,000 settlement homes in other areas of the West Bank.

The ministry’s spokesman, Haitham Abu Alfoul, says “the settlement expansion is a flagrant breach of international law and resolutions,” according to the official Petra news agency.

“Abu Alfoul stressed that the Israeli settlement policy whether in establishing or expanding settlements, seizing lands or forcibly displacing Palestinians, is an illegal policy which is rejected and condemned,” the statement reads.
