Israel forewarned by Germany
On Saturday, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz criticized Israel’s settlement policy in the West Bank and called for a two-state solution. His statement came in when the situation in Gaza is deteriorating, with thousands of deaths occurring and many injured.
On the violence agitated by Israel in the West Bank, he said, “We don’t want any new settlements in the West Bank, no violence by settlers against the Palestinians in the West Bank.”
According to him, a two-state solution is the best outcome for Israelis and Palestinians. The two-state solution, which was proposed by the United Nations , still needs to be implemented.
“If some in Israeli politics distance themselves from this, we will not support them,” said Scholz.
Furthermore, Scholz stressed the importance of German humanitarian aid to the Palestinians. Together with the U.S., Germany is the largest humanitarian aid donor to the Palestinians, the chancellor said.
