Officials from our Embassy in Tel Aviv have been raising the issue of military operations in the West Bank with the Israeli authorities since the beginning of Operation Brother's Keeper. On 2 July, the Prime Minister, my right hon. Friend Mr Cameron, said that it is important that all security operations are conducted with care so that further escalation is avoided.
