We are deeply concerned by the recent spate of attacks and clashes across the Occupied Palestinian Territories and Israel. Officials at our Embassy in Tel Aviv discuss the situation frequently with Israeli officials. Most recently, on 12 October, the UK Charge d'Affaires raised our concerns with Israel’s Deputy Defence Minister, making clear that it is imperative that both sides actively de-escalate the tensions.
