(Times of Israel / Worthy News)– The European Union said Thursday it was "deeply disappointed" over the Israeli announcement to commence construction of thousands of new homes in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and called on the government to "reverse this decision."

The EU also alluded to resolutions to sanction Israel for its settlement activity and vowed to "fully and effectively implement" them.

Just before the EU condemnation, and hours after issuing tenders for 1,500 housing units, the Israeli government ordered officials to move forward with plans for an additional 1,800 settlement homes. The statement from the EU condemned 1,466 approved units, but did not address the later notice.
