Foreign and Commonwealth Office written question – answered on 19th February 2018.
To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they are making to the government of Israel following the death of an unarmed 16 year-old, Laith Abu Naim.
While we have not discussed this specific issue with the Israeli authorities, the UK has repeatedly made clear to Israel our longstanding concerns about the manner in which the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) police non-violent protests and the border areas, including use of live ammunition. The Government is very concerned at the numbers of Palestinians killed by Israel Defense Forces in the West Bank and Gaza. We have raised the issue with the Israeli authorities, encouraging them to carry out transparent investigations whether use of live fire had been appropriate. We understand that the IDF are investigating this death.
