They said they unequivocally condemn all forms of terrorism and violence against civilians and urged authorities to ensure accountability for all perpetrators of violence.

The cycle of violence in Israel and the West Bank must be broken. Australia, Great Britain and Canada stand firmly with the Israeli and Palestinian people in their right to live in peace and security, with dignity, without fear and with their human rights fully respected.

Spain also earlier rejected the expansion of Israeli settlements and condemned violence by settlers, calling Tel Aviv’s decision contrary to international law and an impediment to peace.

The latest expansion announcement sparked a range of criticism from countries and international organizations including the UN.
