Representatives of 13 European countries, including the United Kingdom and the European Union, called on Israel to stop the demolition and confiscation of Palestinian homes and property, in accordance with its obligations as an occupying authority, as well as to stop the policy of building and expanding settlements.

The missions of 13 countries and the European Union in Jerusalem urged Israel to stop building and expanding settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Following the White House announcement of the executive order, the US Treasury Department announced the imposition of sanctions on 4 Israeli settlers pursuant to the executive order.

US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said Thursday, in a statement issued by the White House, that President Joe Biden signed an executive order regarding “actions that undermine peace, security, and stability in the West Bank.”
