Ramallah — Israeli plans to build 430 new settler homes in the occupied West Bank constitute a “war crime”, a senior Palestinian official said Friday.

“What the Israelis announced is part of a wider war... against the Palestinian people,” Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) official Wassel Abu Yusef told AFP.

“This is a war crime which should push the settlements issue to the International Criminal Court.”
