The Palestinians could pursue Israel at the International Criminal Court if it builds new settler homes in a highly-sensitive area of the West Bank near Jerusalem, president Mahmud Abbas warned yesterday.

The Palestinian president said in Ankara at a news conference with Turkish President Abdullah Gul, that if Israel continues with this settlement plan, they will respond using all methods, obviously peaceful, and including the court.


Israeli plans for the construction of 3,000 new settler homes, some of them in a strip of West Bank land called E1, have sparked a major diplomatic backlash, with experts warning it could wipe out hopes of establishing a viable Palestinian state.
