Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas condemns the Israeli decision to advance some 3,000 new housing units in Israeli West Bank settlements.

“These unilateral measures would destroy what remains of the two-state solution, are in defiance of [United Nations] Security Council resolutions and convey disdain for the efforts of the US administration,” Abbas’s office says in a statement.
