In a statement on Thursday, the ministry's official spokesperson, Haitham Abu al-Foul, said Israel's settlement expansion and residents' displacement from their homes is a "flagrant violation and a grave violation" of international law and international legitimacy resolutions, foremost is Security Council Resolution No. 2334.

In addition, the spokesperson noted "Israel's unilateral practices, the occupying power, such as building and expanding settlements, confiscating land and displacing Palestinians are illegal, illegitimate, rejected and deplored, and represent a serious violation of international humanitarian law."
