Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - RAMALLAH — Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh called on the United States administration to put pressure on Israel in order to halt building settlements, and urged for re-opening the US Consulate in Jerusalem.

"We call on the US Administration to practice pressure on Israel to halt the building of settlements and reopen the US embassy in Jerusalem, as this would greatly contribute to the two nations' solution, a matter the current US administration strongly believes in," he said.

He condemned the "Israeli persecution, racism and ethnic cleansing natives of Negev are suffering from, in order to seize their lands and properties."

"Our people have the right to protect their properties and defend them," the Palestinian prime minister added.

He called on the Israeli occupation authorities to halt those "manipulations, which form a blatant violation to the international humanitarian law."
