The Egyptian Foreign Ministry condemned on Saturday Israel's demolition of a Palestinian village in the occupied West Bank, describing the move as a "violation of international legitimacy."
Such Israeli practices pose "obstacles to the two-state solution and the chances of reaching a comprehensive and just peace and achieving stability in the region," said Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmed Hafez in a statement.
The demolition exacerbates the difficult humanitarian conditions facing the Palestinian people, including the challenges related to the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, he added.
Earlier this week, the Israeli forces bulldozed another Palestinian Bedouin village, leaving more than 70 homeless including 41 minors, a move that was slammed by the United Nations and the European Union.
