Whilst we have not raised this specific case with the Israeli authorities, the Government is very concerned at the high numbers of Palestinian children killed and injured by Israel Defense Forces in the West Bank and Gaza. Officials from our Embassy in Tel Aviv have raised the issue of excessive use of force, including use of live ammunition, causing deaths and injuries to Palestinians in the West Bank with both the Office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories and the Israeli Ministry of Defense.
