Ministry spokesperson Daifallah Al-Fayez said in a statement that the move is “absolutely rejected,” adding that it constitutes a breach of international law and UN Security Council resolutions.

He stressed that Israeli settlement policies are “illegitimate, illegal, and a roadblock of efforts to restore calm and achieve comprehensive and just peace, as well as to the chances of a two-state solution, according to the statement.
