On 6 October the Minister for the Middle East and North Africa expressed our concerns about this issue. The UK has repeatedly made clear to Israel our longstanding concerns about the manner in which the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) police protests and the border areas, including use of live ammunition. While we note the IDF has its own investigations processes, we call directly on Israel to carry out a transparent inquiry into the IDF's conduct at the border fence, and to demonstrate how this will achieve a sufficient level of independence.
