UN Security Council to meet on Israeli settlements

New housing units are seen under construction in the Jewish settlement of Neve Yaakov, near Israel's controversial separation wall in the northern area of east JerusalemThe UN Security Council will hold an emergency meeting Wednesday to discuss Israeli plans to build more Jewish settlements in Arab east Jerusalem, diplomats said. The urgent talks were requested by Jordan following a letter from Palestinian envoy Riyad Mansour, who called on the 15-member council to “address this crisis situation in occupied east Jerusalem.” Israel pledged to build more than 1,000 new settler homes in east Jerusalem on Monday, angering Palestinians who warned it could trigger an “explosion” of violence. In his letter, the Palestinian representative called on the council to demand that Israel rescind its plan immediately and “commit to the path of peace that it has clearly and recklessly abandoned.”
