US concerned by Israeli order on settler presence at West Bank outpost

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The US State Department said on Sunday Washington was deeply concerned about an Israeli government order allowing Jewish settlers to establish a permanent presence at the Homesh outpost in the northern West Bank.

The move was inconsistent with Israeli commitments to US administrations and the West Bank settlement push is an obstacle to achieving a two-state solution, State Department spokesman Matthew Miller said in a statement.
