The Security Council, the UN General Assembly (UNGA), the HRC and the International Court of Justice have all confirmed that the construction and expansion of Israeli settlements and other settlement related activities in the Occupied Palestinian territories are illegal under international law, the statement reads.

Bangladesh reaffirmed its support towards the inalienable rights of the People of Palestine to their homeland and urges Israel to comply with the international law in this regard.
