Israel/OPT: A Call to States to Stop Sustaining Illegal Settlements

As the world marks the 50th anniversary of Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, as well as the Golan Heights, the Israeli authorities are reinvigorating their relentless expansion of settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT), with devastating consequences for the human rights of Palestinians.
