EU Says Razing of al-Quds Hotel 'Illegal'

"I strongly condemn this morning's demolition of the Shepherd Hotel and the planned construction of a new illegal settlement," EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said in a statement on Sunday.

She reminded that the settlements are "illegal" under international law, adding that "It undermines trust between parties and constitutes an obstacle to peace."

Israeli bulldozers destroyed the hotel compound in East al-Quds to build 20 new settler units on the occupied Palestinian land, defying international calls for putting an end to Tel Aviv's demolitions.'
