Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the US will be reversing the Obama era policy opposing Israeli settlements in the West Bank.
The Trump administration revealed that it will strip down a 1978 State Department legal opinion that found settlements in Palestinian-controlled areas were “inconsistent with international law.”
The U.S. previously opposed Israeli settlements encroaching into Palestinian-controlled land in support of the two-state solution.
"The Trump administration is reversing the Obama administration's approach towards Israeli settlements," Pompeo announces. The U.S. will no longer view them as inconsistent with international law https://t.co/gywPb6ga1W pic.twitter.com/Z2lxbDTKpI
