On Monday, US State Department spokesman Matthew Miller said the United States was “deeply disturbed” by the Israeli government’s intention to approve thousands of building permits in the occupied West Bank.

The spokesman added that Washington calls on Israel to return to dialogue, which aims to stop the escalation.

“The United States, in accordance with its longstanding policy, opposes such unilateral measures that make the realization of the two-state solution more difficult and constitute an obstacle to peace,” he said in a statement.

On Sunday, the Israeli government approved a plan to expand settlements in the occupied West Bank, in a move that was condemned by several Arab countries.
