EU 'breaking international law' by funding illegal West Bank building projects per Daily Mail Online

The Daily Mail manages to report some illegal settlement building by Palestinians in the West Bank. Somehow I doubt that the institutionally anti Israel BBC will report the same news.
' The EU is acting illegally by funding unauthorised Palestinian building in areas placed under Israeli control by international law, say an NGO, international lawyers and MEPs.

More than 400 EU-funded Palestinian homes have been erected in Area C of the West Bank, which was placed under Israeli jurisdiction during the Oslo Accords – a part of international law to which the EU is a signatory.

The Palestinian buildings, which have no permits, come at a cost of tens of millions of Euros in public money, a proportion of which comes from the British taxpayer.

This has raised concerns that the EU is using valuable resources to take sides in a foreign territorial dispute.'
