United Nations official says Israeli settlement construction in occupied West Bank illegal

In November, 10 senators who caucus with the Democrats, among them four Jews, wrote Netanyahu urging him not to demolish Palestinian villages that Israel has deemed unauthorized, saying it would imperil a two-state outcome to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
