(7 Feb 2017) A senior Palestinian official described an Israeli law that is meant to retroactively legalise thousands of West Bank settlement homes built illegally on private Palestinian land as "putting the last nail on the coffin of the two-state solution." "Israeli Government trying to legalize looting Palestinian land - it's a theft, it's looting Palestinian land," Saeb Erekat said on Tuesday. The vote passed 60-52 in Israel's 120-member Knesset on Monday, following a raucous debate in which opposition lawmakers shouted from their seats at governing coalition lawmakers speaking in favour of the vote from the dais. 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. The step is expected to trigger international outrage and a flurry of lawsuits against the measure.
