I raised demolitions with the Israeli Ambassador to the UK on 11 October; in particular urging Israel to reconsider plans to demolish the village of Khan al-Ahmar. Our Ambassador to Israel raised the proposed demolition with the Israeli authorities on 3 October. We remain gravely concerned by these proposals and will continue to raise our concerns with the Israeli authorities.
