EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell has condemned Israel for building new settlements in the occupied territories, EU High Representative wrote in this regard on his X account, APA reports.

"I am appalled to learn that in the middle of a war, Israel commits new funds to build more illegal settlements. This has nothing to do with self-defence and will not make Israel safer. The settlements are a grave breach of IHL and they are Israel’s greatest security liability," Borrell noted.
