To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they intend to make to the government of Israel about (1) threats of violence, and (2) actual violence reportedly made by settlers towards Palestinians who seek advice from lawyers or humanitarian organisations about protecting their land.
We continue to urge the Israeli Government to fully respect the fundamental rights and freedoms of human rights defenders and organisations and for those who seek their advice. The British Government condemns any violence by settlers against Palestinians. Under international law, Israel, as the occupying power, has an obligation to take all measures in its power to protect the Palestinian population from all acts of violence. The British Government also supports Bedouin communities and Palestinians facing demolition or eviction to seek advice through our legal aid programme.
