On Tuesday, he met President Francois Hollande, who voiced concern over a law retroactively legalizing about 4,000 settler homes built on privately owned Palestinian land in the West Bank.

The Settlements Law, which was passed by the Knesset this Monday, comes a mere few weeks after the Israeli government announced its intention to allow the construction of some 5,000 new housing units in the West Bank.
