Posted on Feb 24, 2016

Statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development Spokesperson

160223 France Logo February 23, 2016 – France condemns the dismantlement by the Israeli army, during the night of February 20- 21, of an elementary school under construction which was funded by the French humanitarian aid in Abu Nuwar, in the West bank.

This project is located in an area considered by the European Union as key to the viability of the Two-State solution.

We are deeply concerned by the consequences of the dismantlement and confiscation of humanitarian structures in the West Bank. We call upon the Israeli authorities to put an end to these operations that impact already vulnerable communities.
