The UK will continue to follow closely the Israeli government's plans with respect to Bedouin villages in the Negev. We have made clear our view about the need to avoid forced displacement. We have continually encouraged the Israeli government and Bedouin communities to engage in dialogue to agree a lasting, satisfactory solution to this long-standing and complex issue.
