We have discussed with the Israeli authorities settler violence and the impact it has on Palestinians in the Occupied Territories. We have encouraged the Israeli authorities to follow through on their stated commitment to bring perpetrators of settler violence to justice. We have not specifically raised the issue of compensation. We will continue to monitor the situation closely.
