CAIRO, June 2 (MENA) - The Arab League vehemently condemned Israel's decision to build more than 800 settlement units in the occupied East Jerusalem.

In statements on Sunday, AL Assistant Secretary General for Palestinian territories and occupied Arab Lands Saeed Abu Ali stressed that the Israeli settlement measures violate all international resolutions, laws and conventions.

He castigated at the international community's silence and the US' support for Israel as encouraging the latter to continue its aggression against the Palestinians.

He accentuated that attempts to impose a status quo will not sap the Palestinians' will to fight the occupation and build an independent Palestinian state.

The three Mecca summits which were held on Saturday underlined support for the Palestinian struggle against the Israeli occupation.
