Palestine has called upon the international community to impose sanctions and other punitive measures against the Zionist entity over its settlement construction policies in the occupied territories.
The Palestinian foreign ministry says that their nation pays a heavy price every day as a result of settler violence and the surge in crimes being committed by Israeli troops against defenseless civilians, their land, property and homes.
The ministry added that the occupying Tel Aviv regime uses all its capabilities to prevent the presence of Palestinians in Area C of the West Bank, which constitutes about 61 percent of the territory and is under full Israeli military control.
In order to build settlements as part of its creeping annexation of occupied territories, the Israeli regime divides the West Bank, killing any chance for the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with East al-Quds as its capital.
It said it has brought Israeli violations to international courts, most notably the International Criminal Court (ICC), and contacted various UN officials and institutions.
