Our Consul-General in Jerusalem visited the village of Duma on 4 August to express our condolences to the relatives of the Dawabsha family and the local community. On 31 July, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my hon. Friend the Member for Bournemouth East (Mr Ellwood), issued a press statement strongly condemning the attack. We have called on the Israeli authorities to ensure that those responsible for this crime are brought swiftly to justice.
