To ask Her Majesty's Government what reports they have received, if any, concerning the detention by the Israeli Defence Force of the son, Abdal Khaliq, and friends of Iyad Burnat, a Palestinian farmer and activist; what discussions they have held with the government of Israel concerning the fate of those detainees; and whether they will seek assurances from the government of Israel that the reported actions were not the result of Iyad Burnat's meeting with UK parliamentarians.
