Turkish minister hopes for settlements repeal

(7 Feb 2017) Turkish Tourism Minister Nabi Avci said on Tuesday that he hopes the Israeli Supreme court will overturn a bill to retroactively legalise thousands of West Bank settlement homes built unlawfully on private Palestinian land that was passed by the Israeli parliament the previous evening. The explosive law is the latest in a series of pro-settler steps taken by Israel's hard-line government since the election of Donald Trump as US president. It is expected to trigger international outrage and a flurry of lawsuits against the measure. The comments by Avci came as he met with his Israeli counterpart Yariv Levin at the International Mediterranean Tourism Market conference in Tel Aviv. The visit is the first since the two countries restored relations last year following a botched commando raid on a Gaza bound humanitarian ship that left 10 dead in 2010.
