We are aware of the demolition orders regarding the village of Al Aqaba. The UK has a strong record of lobbying hard on issues relating to house demolitions and settlement building. Our Ambassador to Tel Aviv expressed strong concerns to the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Prime Minister's Office on 8 December over pending demolition orders in the West Bank, but we have not made representations on this specific case. We will continue to monitor the situation of the pending demolition orders.
