US urged to ‘rescind’ 1978 opinion on illegality of Israeli settlements

The United States government is being urged to rescind a 1978 opinion on the illegality of Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt), reported The Jerusalem Post.

According to the report, the Zionist Organisation of America (ZOA) has “embarked on a renewed campaign this week to pressure the Trump administration on the matter”, claiming that “termination of this opinion is long overdue”.

Jeff Daube, the ZOA’s Israel Director, is seeking to “solicit support among US Congress members for the Trump administration to formally rescind a 1978 opinion by former State Department legal adviser Herbert J. Hansell, who worked for the Carter administration”, said The Jerusalem Post.
