The U.S. state Department is concerned about the extension of jurisdiction in gush Etzion

American foreign Ministry expressed concern about the decision of the Israeli authorities to expand the jurisdiction of the local Council of gush Etzion, a bloc of settlements behind the «green line».

According to John Kirby, press Secretary of the U.S. Department of state, continued settlement activity raises questions about the long-term intentions of Israel and endangers peaceful resolution of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict based on the principle of «two States for two peoples». He stressed that the extension of jurisdiction means the construction of a new settlement on a plot of 10 acres.

Earlier, Israeli defense Minister Moshe ya’alon signed a decree on the extension of the jurisdiction of the local Council of gush Etzion in an area of 40 dunums. According to the newspaper ha’aretz, the land was bought by a non-profit organization financed by Jewish millionaire Irving Moskowitz and his wife.

On this site it is planned to build new homes for settlers.
