Aipac-backed US lawmaker slams Israel’s seizure of occupied West Bank land

A democratic lawmaker endorsed by pro-Israel lobby Aipac has slammed Israel for seizing large swaths of the occupied West Bank.

Democratic Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin, who is running for a Senate seat, said it "inflames" tensions in the region.

“These land seizures are illegal, they make a two-state solution even more distant and they inflame tensions at a time when everyone should be trying to de-escalate the situation in the Middle East,” Slotkin said on X.
