To ask Her Majesty's Government what reply, if any, they received to the letter of 31 July from the Foreign Secretary to the Prime Minister of Israel calling, together with other European countries, for reconsideration of the decision to demolish the village and school of Khan al-Ahmar; and what further steps they plan to take on this issue.

​We have yet to receive a response to our joint letter about Khan al-Ahmar, and we continue to call on Israel to abandon demolition plans entirely, and instead provide a transparent route to construction for Palestinians in Area C. Most recently our Ambassador to Israel raised our concerns with the Israeli authorities on 3 October, and the Minister for Middle East and North Africa reiterated our concerns in a meeting with the Israeli Ambassador to the UK on 11 October. We remain in close consultation with likeminded EU partners about what should be done next.
