Buildings under construction in the Israeli settlement of Har Homa, in annexed east JerusalemA much-awaited report by the Middle East diplomatic quartet should serve as a “wakeup call” to Israel to halt the expansion of settlements and to the Palestinians to renounce violence, the UN envoy said Thursday. Nickolay Mladenov said ongoing Israeli construction in the West Bank was one of three “negative trends” that must be quickly reversed to keep the hope of an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal alive. Violence and incitement, settlements and the Palestinian Authority’s lack of control over the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip “severely undermine hopes for peace,” Mladenov said.
