The assertion came in response to remarks made by Netanyahu on Monday, in which he said Israel must be given full security control over the West Bank "in any future agreement" with the Palestinians.

"Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised on Tuesday to continue building settlements in the West Bank and called himself the first prime minister in decades, who will promote building a new Jewish settlement there".

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) criticized Guterres's "incomplete and misleading" comments, saying the Six-Day War anniversary "cannot be viewed in a vacuum".

The down-payment is part of a £5m support fund established by the Government in the wake of Wednesday's fire. Those who lost their home will also be given £500 in cash, the Government announced on Sunday.

The "occupation", claimed Guterres, "has fuelled recurring cycles of violence and retribution".

Palestinian Senior Negotiator Saeb Erekat answered this question and said in an official statement released on Sunday, on the occasion of 50 years of Israeli occupation, that the Palestinian leadership will refuse and fight the Israelis' attempt to impose apartheid through colonial settlement and intensive processes of ethnic cleansing and collective punishment, in anticipation of reaching a political settlement.

"The Palestinian delegation was then able to clarify the situation", he added.

"Now is not the time to give up on this goal", he said. He called for the establishment of a Palestinian state through "direct negotiations to resolve all final status issues on the basis of relevant United Nations resolutions, agreements and worldwide law". Continued settlement construction and expansion; violence and incitement; and the illicit arms build-up and militant activity in Gaza risk creating a one-state reality that is incompatible with realizing the legitimate national and historic aspirations of both peoples.

According to Guterres, resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would "remove a driver of violent extremism and terrorism in the Middle East and open the doors to cooperation, security, prosperity and human rights for all".

Within 20 years of being recognised as an independent state, Israel began an occupation that would become the longest in modern history, at 50 years and counting.

On 14 May 1948, the State of Israel was born, but nearly seven decades later, “the world still awaits the birth of an independent Palestinian state, ” he said, offering once again to work with all relevant stakeholders to support a genuine peace process.
