The resolution would demand Israel “immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory.”

U.S. President-elect Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged the Obama administration on Thursday to veto a U.N. Security Council draft resolution calling for an immediate halt to illegal settlements on occupied Palestinian land.

Netanyahu took to Twitter in the dead of night in Israel to make the appeal, saying “The U.S. should veto the anti-Israel resolution at the U.N. Security Council on Thursday.”

Hours later, Trump echoed the Israeli leader’s statement, arguing in a post on Twitter and Facebook that: “The resolution being considered at the United Nations Security Council regarding Israel should be vetoed.”

Trump said that “as the United States has long maintained, peace between the Israelis and Palestinians will only come through direct negotiations between the parties, and not through the imposition of terms by the United Nations.”

“This puts Israel in a very poor negotiating position and is extremely unfair to all Israelis,” he wrote.

Egypt circulated the draft Wednesday evening and the 15-member council is due to vote at 3 p.m. ET (2000 GMT) on Thursday, diplomats said. It was unclear, they said, how the United States, which has often protected Israel from U.N. action, would vote.

The resolution would demand Israel “immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem.” The White House declined to comment.

Much of the international community considers the settlements in occupied territory to be illegal, with numerous United Nations resolutions calling the settlements a violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention.

The settlements are also largely funded by private tax-exempt U.S. NGOs, with an estimated US$220 million for 2009-2013 alone, according to a recent investigation.
