With new housing units due to the fill an area of land between East Jerusalem and the settlement of Maale Adumim known as the E-1 envelope, a statement from Mr Ban's office said the proposal "risks completely cutting off East Jerusalem from the rest of the West Bank". It was issued after Israel rejected the UN's endorsement of Palestin's non-member observer status, declaring it would withhold more than $100m (£62m) for the Palestinian government to pay debts to Israeli companies.
