US ‘extremely troubled’ by Knesset vote legitimizing West Bank settlements

The United States says it is “extremely troubled” by the Knesset’s vote to repeal parts of the 2005 Disengagement Law and legitimize some West Bank settlements, calling the move “provocative” and in violation of promises to ally Washington.

“The United States is extremely troubled that the Israeli Knesset has passed legislation rescinding important parts of the 2005 Disengagement Law,” State Department spokesman Vedant Patel tells reporters.
