Israel has summoned the British, French, Italian and Spanish ambassadors to Israel to hear complaints about EU "hypocrisy" on settlements. Its move comes after the four states summoned the Israeli ambassadors to criticise them for announcing 1,400 new settler homes while in the middle of pace talks with Palestine.
