UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The Palestinians are demanding urgent action by the U.N. Security Council and the international community to halt Israel's "illegal settlement campaign."
Palestinian Charge d'Affaires Feda Abdelhady Nasser said in letters Wednesday to the council, the General Assembly and the secretary-general that the intensification of the Israeli campaign is clearly part of "Israel's contemptuous response" to the assembly's overwhelming vote last week to recognize the state of Palestine.
She said Israel's settlement campaign "is directly impacting the prospects for attaining peace and security in the Middle East."
The Palestinians called on the council and the Quartet of Mideast mediators — the U.S., U.N., European Union and Russia — "to act immediately to demand an end to Israel's illegal activities and to salvage the prospects for reviving credible peace negotiations."
