Russia tells ICJ Israel must stop all settlement activities, US differs

Russia at the ICJ hearing on 21 February called for legal consequences of Israel's occupation of Palestine, telling the court 'Israel has a duty to put an end to current violations,' while the United States opposed saying Israel should not be legally forced to withdraw from occupied Palestinian territory without security guarantees.

"Stop all settlement activities in the occupied territory. The court would be right to conclude that Israel has a duty to put an end to its current violations and provide reparations," said Vladimir Tarabrin, Russia's ambassador to the Netherlands.
