Bangladesh terms Israeli settlements in Palestine illegal

Bangladesh has reiterated its unflinching support to Palestine and its territorial integrity and termed Israeli settlements and their expansion in occupied Palestinian territories illegal under the international laws. The foreign office of Bangladesh in a statement yesterday said Palestine and its territorial integrity have been established through UNSC resolution 242 and also other UNSC resolutions including UNSCR 338, 425, 1397, 1515 and 1544 and the principle of ‘land for peace.’

Besides, the foreign ministry said the Security Council, the UNGA, the Human Rights Council and the International Court of Justice have all confirmed that the construction and expansion of Israeli settlements and other settlement related activities in the Occupied Palestinian territories are illegal under the international law.

Bangladesh is convinced that there is no ambiguity about the illegal status of Israeli occupation and settlement activities in the Palestinian territories.
