Umm Qassa - an illegal Bedouin settlement in Area C, land in the West Bank under full Israeli administration according to the Oslo Accords

EU-funded construction in Area C - According to the Oslo Accords, Area C in the West Bank is under full Israeli control. Therefore, it is illegal for the EU to promote or fund any construction or development in Area C without Israeli permission. The EU’s intentional funding of illegal Palestinian building is an impediment to peace as it undermines respect for agreements and the rule of law.
