The United Nations and all UN Security Council powers except the United States condemned Israel's heightened settler construction in the Palestinian territories as a threat to flagging peace efforts.

UN leader Ban Ki-moon said Israel was on a "dangerous path," while European Union nations said Israel was "undermining faith" in its willingness to negotiate with Palestinian leaders.

Russia's UN envoy called the Israeli construction "fraught" with risks and a threat to decades of efforts for a two-state end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. China also called on Israel to pull back from confrontation.
