A picture taken on December 3, 2013 shows the mosque of the village al-Mazraa al-Kubliyeh in the foreground and bungalows in background built by Israeli settlers at an outpost constructed on seized land from the Palestinian village, near the West Bank city of Birzeit. Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas has warned that ongoing settlement building by Israel in the Palestinian territories threatens the future of Middle East peace talks, which are at an impasse little more than three months after they began.
