Germany, France, UK, Poland, Belgium, Spain, and Estonia all condemn Israeli demolition of Palestinian homes

The governments of Germany, France, Britain, Spain, Belgium and Poland have all strongly condemned Israel for its demolition of Palestinian homes near Jerusalem.

Following a council meeting on the Middle East, the European governments released a joint statement which said: “We as member states of the European Union strongly condemn the demolition by Israel of Palestinian buildings in the district of Wadi al Hummus, in the south east of Jerusalem,” report the Anadolu Agency and the Agence France-Presse.

“In all but the most exceptional of circumstances, demolition in occupied territories is contrary to International Humanitarian Law and to UNSC resolutions,” the statement continued. 

The European Union countries contend that demolitions cause “unnecessary suffering to ordinary Palestinians and is harmful to the peace process.”

The statement follows an announcement made by the Israeli on Tuesday which stated that twelve Palestinian buildings which it considers to have been illegally constructed were demolished on Monday.
