UN Security Council Denounces Israel in Statement

(Reuters) Michelle Nichols - The UN Security Council issued a formal statement on Monday denouncing Israel's settlement activity, the first action the U.S. has allowed the body to take against its ally Israel in six years. "The Security Council reiterates that continuing Israeli settlement activities are dangerously imperiling the viability of the two-state solution based on the 1967 lines."
