U.S. criticizes Israel plan to subsidize West Bank settlement construction

Israeli constructions in the West Bank

The United States have criticized the plan of Netanyahu’s government to subsidize construction in 557 rural settlements, of which 70 are deep inside the West Bank. State Department spokesman Mark toner calls the move “unconstructive and unhelpful”, adding that these kinds of actions can hamper the process of getting Israel and Palestine back to direct negotiations. The Palestinian Authority also condemned the plan, saying that Netanyahu’s government was “adding obstacles at a time when everyone is intensifying efforts to try to resume peace talks.”
