Commenting on steps taken by the Government of Israel to begin the authorisation of an illegal outpost and to allow settlers to regain ownership of a building in Hebron, the Foreign Secretary William Hague said:

"The UK condemns the decisions taken by the Israeli authorities to change the status of a significant amount of land around the illegal settler outpost of Netiv Ha’avot and to create a new settlement in Hebron. Settlements are illegal and an obstacle to peace, and these decisions detract from ongoing efforts to deliver a two state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The only path to peace is through negotiations."
